Wake County Unsheltered Facility Study

This study seeks an answer to one simple question: What would it take to ensure all Wake County residents in a housing crisis quickly receive the right services in the appropriate order, starting with crisis response? Wake County’s Housing Department partnered with Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH), a national leader in supportive housing solutions, to design and implement this study. These study findings extended beyond identifying system needs within Wake County. This report also provides a model to support unsheltered populations in any community committed to ending unsheltered homelessness, inviting readers to imagine adding each component to their community for a homeless system that meet the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors.
