Date Published: September 2003


Abt Associates conducted a cost-effectiveness assessment of employment services in supportive housing. In this second and final report, the authors conclude that it is cost effective to finance employment services in supportive housing and that benefits accrue for tenants, funders, and society. The study follows a cohort of 536 participants in nine supportive housing sites for nearly four years.
