Affordable Housing for Families: Assessing the Outcomes
This Research Highlight explores the changes in shelter and non-shelter outcomes for low - income families as a result of moving into social housing. It found that most of these families reported being better off financially and enjoy more suitable, higher-quality housing that is better maintained. They also experience less financial stress, more privacy, less crowding and more secure tenancy. Moreover, families report additional non-shelter benefits, such as better nutrition and physical and mental health, and better access to services.
