This report from the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health is an evaluation that follows FUSE program participants from recruitment through two years after placement into supportive housing. Housing instability and homelessness increase the risk for incarceration and, conversely, incarceration increases the risk for homelessness. FUSE provided supportive housing to approximately 200 individuals who were frequently cycling in and out of jails and homeless shelters. The report also describes the intervention, evaluation, and outcomes of FUSE II, a second-generation FUSE initiative.
