Homelessness: A Preliminary Evaluation of an Effort to End Homelessness Durham County, NC

By Alexander Tilley

The Durham Center is the public agency in Durham County responsible for connecting persons who are homeless or at risk of homelessness with the services that they need. In February of 2008 the Durham Center began to perform Care Review, where a 10-person Care Review team meets with an individual to develop a personalized system of care to place that person in permanent and/or stable housing and/or keep them there. Key indicators for successful placement by 3 months after initial review are access to prescription medicine services, age, race, primary medical home, and steady income.
