Our Ph.D. Students in Action

“Vanessa Fry, Assistant Director of the Public Policy Vanessa-Fry-PhotoResearch Center, gave a presentation to the Boise/Ada County Housing and Homelessness Roundtable on the costs associated with homelessness in Ada County, Idaho…Fry’s research shows that to address the needs of 100 individuals experiencing chronic homelessness in Ada County the community spends about $5.3 million on an annual basis. Providing a Housing First alternative to those individuals would cost about $1.6 million annual (not inclusive of capital cost for new housing units).”
