“Working In the Homeless Services Sector” Survey

An estimated 1.3 million people are annually served in the nation’s shelters. The workforce that serves them includes street outreach workers, caseworkers, front desk attendants, data experts, and so many others. Without these individuals, it is impossible to end homelessness or to even meet their immediate needs.

The following survey seeks to gather information about what people like about their jobs and the challenges they face. Such knowledge can inform policy, practice, and general conversations about supporting the workforce.

All responses are anonymous.

This survey has closed.

All workers in the sector are invited to respond (for example, CoC, shelter, and street outreach workers). However, we may particularly need help reaching frontline workers. Thus, we ask that you share this web page and link with them (and others you think may be interested). Thanks!
