Managing Homeless Shelters

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This is a formal analysis of how homeless shelters should operate: in particular, what quality of accommodations they should provide and how they should help their residents in securing conventional housing. The author also examines timing. The results extend to cover optimal police response to street homelessness as well. The author draws heavily on the unemployment insurance literature. Current macroeconomic difficulties have renewed interest in homelessness and spurred governments to do more in this area.
