National Homeless Services Workforce Survey

The School of Social Work at the University of Texas Arlington is leading the National Homeless Services Workforce survey. This is the first survey of U.S. homeless services workers in nearly 30 years. The survey seeks to understand the background, characteristics and work experiences of people who work in the homeless services section, intending to fill a major gap in knowledge about the workforce and its needs.
