Public Health Lecturer Jessica Wolin is part of a team researching the effectiveness of programs addressing homelessness among California college students. In a Kresge Foundation video posted June 29, she discusses College-Focused Rapid Rehousing, a model that incorporates community-based support services tailored to students.

“What’s unique about this model on our college campuses — both at the community college level and at the Cal State level — is we’re trying to go beyond the traditional approaches that we’re using to address student homelessness,” Wolin said. “The College-Focused Rapid Rehousing model provides students with a direct entry into permanent housing. ”
