Reunifying families, cutting costs: housing-child welfare partnerships for permanent supportive housing.

Author information

  • 1Governor's Office for Children, Youth and Families, Baltimore, MD, USA.


In the absence of an adequate supply of affordable, quality housing, child welfare agencies are placed in the unenviable position of separating families to protect children from the debilitating effects of homelessness. This article presents recommendations for costeffective housing-child welfare partnerships that will shift the burden of providing adequate housing back to housing agencies. These partnerships have the potential to move child welfare agencies closer to achieving permanence and well-being for all children.
