Research in Social Welfare: Homelessness

  Congratulations to the University at Albany School of Social Welfare for receiving a $100,000 grant from The New York Community Trust. The grant will be used to support the school’s National Center for Excellence in Homelessness. The Center hopes to use the money to create a National Homelessness Social Work Initiative aimed at combining the efforts of social work programs across the country to promote homelessness as a professional priority. In honor of the School of Social Welfare’s success, the Dewey Graduate Library is providing a list of various resources on homelessness available here.
