Breaking the Homelessness-Jail Cycle with Housing First: Results from the Denver Supportive Housing Social Impact Bond Initiative – Jul 15

Posted by Urban Institute on July 6, 2021

In 2014, Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock announced a plan to better serve some of the city’s most vulnerable residents with supportive housing and intensive services. The Denver Supportive Housing Social Impact Bond Initiative (Denver SIB) fulfilled this commitment through innovative “pay for success” financing that helped fund supportive housing for hundreds of individuals who were experiencing chronic homelessness and frequently interacting with police, jails, and emergency rooms. A five-year randomized controlled trial evaluation demonstrated the remarkable success of the Denver SIB.

Join the Urban Institute and the City of Denver for a summary of soon-to-be-released evaluation findings and pay for success outcomes, and a panel discussion about the implementation and implications of the initiative.

The event will take place on Thursday, July 15, 3:00-4:30 p.m. EDT.
