Homelessness to Housed in a Hurry: Extending the Use of Diversion to Help Families Exit Homelessness
Since 2014, Building Changes has tested Diversion as a strategy to help families avoid or exit homelessness. Their Diversion pilots in King and Pierce counties have served a combined 1,898 families. This evaluation of those pilots reveals that Diversion costs less and takes less time to get families successfully housed, and that the vast majority of the families that obtained housing through Diversion did not return to homelessness within a year.
