The SHIFT (Service and Housing Interventions for Families in Transition) Longitudinal Study examines the effectiveness of emergency shelter, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing in establishing and maintaining residential stability and self-sufficiency for families in four communities in Upstate New York: Albany, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo. Interviews were conducted at program entry and follow up interviews were conducted 15 and 30 months later. Mothers answer questions about their children, their housing and employment history, their health and mental health, challenges they have faced, their receipt of services and public benefits, and their accomplishments. The SHIFT Study is a project of The National Center on Family Homelessness, a practice area of AIR’s Human and Social Development Program. (author abstract)
