Housing Assistance and Supportive Services in Memphis. FOCUS GROUPS WITH HOPE VI RELOCATEES IN MEMPHIS

01/05/2013

To further understand the experiences of service receipt for adults in households receiving housing assistance, we conducted three focus groups in October and November 2012. The focus group topics were developed to help answer two of the project's five research questions:

 

3.       What barriers do stakeholders in Memphis identify for the effective delivery of supportive services to HOPE VI relocatees? How do these barriers differ among residents who have relocated with vouchers, those who moved to new mixed income housing, and those who remain in traditional public housing or project-based Section 8 housing?

4.       How has any relocation of individuals and families from public housing facilities to other housing types affected access and use of federally funded supportive services?

 

The focus group protocol (see appendix A) was developed to address these issues, focusing on understanding a wide range of experiences that relate to participants' housing situation and service needs.
