Better evidence
for a world without homelessness

The Centre for Homelessness Impact exists to improve the lives of people experiencing homelessness through better use of data and evidence.

Use our data and evidence tools

Our Evidence Tools for homelessness put evidence at people's fingertips, making the available evidence easier to use and highlighting where more and better evidence is needed. Our tools show what the evidence says about homelessness interventions and help you make smarter decisions about how to best serve those experiencing homelessness in the future.
