This final report presents findings from the Linking Human Services and Housing Supports to Address Family Homelessness project.  Through in-depth, on-site case studies, this study observed 14 communities that coordinate federally funded housing supports and comprehensive services to more effectively serve homeless families and families at risk of becoming homeless.  Seven of the models include participation from local public housing agencies (PHAs).  The report includes information about the structure of the programs examined, common promising practices identified across the models, and detailed case studies of the 14 models.
