Evidence Matters: Fall14

The fall issue of Evidence Matters focuses on why housing matters for youth, documenting evidence that a range of outcomes in children are closely aligned with housing and neighborhood quality.

The lead article, “Housing’s and Neighborhoods’ Role in Shaping Children’s Future,” presents an overview of the topic, discussing the effect of housing and neighborhood quality on physical health, behavioral and emotional welfare, school achievement, and economic opportunity, among other topics.

The Research Spotlight piece, “How Housing Mobility Affects Education Outcomes for Low-Income Children,” details research on the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Making Connections initiative and analyzes important findings on mobility and educational attainment.

Finally, the In Practice article, “Protecting Children From Unhealthy Homes and Housing Instability,” examines the work of organizations that promote housing quality and reduce youth homelessness.
