Connecting Research to Practice

A program hosted by the National Center on Homelessness among Veterans to present current research on homeless populations that has implications for the field.  This occasional forum provides clinicians, VA homeless program managers, and front line staff the opportunity to discuss particular research studies and how findings might be considered in planning, developing, or implementing services for homeless or formerly homeless Veterans.

Homeless Evidence and Research Synthesis (HERS)

The Center developed the Homeless Evidence and Research Synthesis (HERS) Roundtable series in 2015 to convene groups of peer researchers and subject matter experts (SMEs) to discuss research and policy issues surrounding homelessness. Through the use of virtual conferencing and an interactive software platform, the HERS format brings together researchers, policy makers, service providers, other government agencies, and the private sector. After each session, a proceedings document is developed which outlines the research findings presented, policy and/or service delivery issues, and suggested recommendations.
