The New York City Center for Innovation through Data Intelligence (CIDI), an AISP Network site, recently performed an outcomes study of a Good Shepherd Services’ supportive housing program for at-risk youth in NYC. The study utilized administrative data from different agencies in order to look at outcomes for youth enrolled in the program compared to youth who applied and were eligible, but ultimately not placed in supportive housing. Analysis shows that youth served by the Good Shepherd program had much lower rates of homelessness and incarceration than the comparison group.Please click on the below links to read more about study results and program implications.
