In alignment with our goal to leverage a vast network of transdisciplinary scholarship and community knowledge to inform critical policy issues, the Clark-Fox Policy Institute crafts original policy briefs to advance effective policy solutions and practices.
The Housing First approach recognizes that people experiencing homelessness first need the safety and stability of a home in order to address other challenges. The model calls for rapid placement in homes, without mandating any prerequisites. A new policy brief by the Clark-Fox Policy Institute, Housing First Puts Children First, explores the merits of Housing First as an intervention to reduce homelessness, particularly for families with children.
Weapons and violence in schools are a significant public health challenge that affects the physical and mental health of young people across the United States, as well as their families and communities. To address the issue, a panel of scholars, experts, and activists convened for a congressional briefing on June 12, 2019. A new policy brief by the Clark-Fox Policy Institute chronicles the recommendations from the briefing.
