Wesleyan Shelter Study
A retrospective analysis of client stays at the Eddy Shelter, the only emergency homeless shelter for single, adult men and women in Middlesex County. Through accessing The Connection’s continuum of services, a significant number of our guests are able to transition successfully back into the community, find stable housing and employment, and complete educational programs. This analysis looked at factors that contribute to a shelter guest graduating to stability and self-sufficiency, including length of stay, employment status and access to housing. This study was conducted in partnership with the Quantitative Analysis Center at Wesleyan and was made possible with funding from the National Science Foundation. Click here to read more information.
