PsyD Alum on Panel at Congressional Briefing on Family Homelessness

Dr. Carmela J. DeCandia (Antioch 1999) of The Bassuk Center recently participated in a Congressional Briefing about why a combination of both housing and services is necessary to end family homelessness.  The briefing, sponsored by The Bassuk Center in cooperation with the Congressional Caucus on Homelessness, was attended by national policymakers, service providers, and advocates who heard experts present research-based solutions to family homelessness. The theme of the briefing was drawn from a new report by The Bassuk Center, “Services Matter: How Housing and Services Can End Family Homelessness.”

“Our main message to national policymakers is that housing alone cannot end family homelessness,” said Dr. DeCandia. “Families need specific services to remain stable in their housing. Along with funding for housing, the federal government must also support essential services to meet its goal of ending family homelessness by 2020.”
