Abstract or project description

According to the California Senate, 25,777 families are chronically homeless in California. However many more families are at imminent risk. I examine the main causes of families at risk of homelessness in California. I review existing subsidies and resources for families at risk of experiencing homelessness (e.g., Project Roomkey, CalWorks, Bringing Families Home Program, Home Safe Program, Community Care Expansion Program). I evaluate these resources based on their effectiveness of keeping families housed alongside other benefits, such as mental health, XXXX. I make a policy recommendation to improve the homelessness response for families who have reached this point based on my evaluation of the subsidies’ efficacy.
