Health and Human Services & Homelessness

I read the page, but it doesn’t really say anything. http://www.hhs.gov/homeless/

I guess I was hoping for an initiative, specific resources, a standard plan to approach homelessness and a critique of how different agencies and states collect information and distribute assistance.

ie, the page says “In order to develop strategies to effectively provide health and human services to persons experiencing homelessness, the Department must first understand who becomes homeless and understand the service needs of those facing homelessness. Therefore, the Department supports research on homelessness to develop further knowledge and evidence-based practices for the provision of treatment and services, as well as to investigate opportunities to prevent homelessness among vulnerable populations.”

      I want to know WHAT RESEARCH are you supporting? And What have you learned.

Maybe I am too demanding.
