Institute of Homelessness Studies
The Institute of Homelessness Studies (IHS) at Camillus House is an institution focused on expanding the knowledge-base surrounding homeless issues, and improving the capacity and effectiveness of individuals, organizations, and systems serving persons experiencing homelessness. IHS focuses on four areas of concentration: training and education; media and publications; research and evaluation; and customized consultation services.
IHS draws upon Camillus House’s more than 50 years of experience of working in the homeless field, bringing together resources and expertise towards the goal of ending homelessness.
Camillus House established the Institute of Homelessness Studies to serve as a facilitator, convener and resource from which communities across the country can learn and replicate successful models for solving the problem of chronic homelessness.
