About Homelessness Hub


Who We Are

We engage in research and education that support impactful solutions to end homelessness and provide dignified housing for all.

Homelessness Hub at UC San Diego is a research hub engaging in applied, community-partnered research. We organize and produce data and analyses for use by researchers, students, policymakers, elected officials, business leaders, service providers, stakeholders, and community members.

Our vision is to be relevant as a trusted organization recognized for its integrity and quality of research and analysis focused on homelessness.
