Length of Time Homeless

Target

Target for average length of time persons experience homelessness in Durham is set at 90 days or less (based on federal standards from the United States Inter-agency Council on Homelessness)

Analysis

Length of time persons experience homelessness in Durham is over 100 days.  This is slightly above the national average and above the state average.

Next Steps

To reduce the time persons remain homeless, efforts will be undertaken to more systematically engage landlords so that resources dedicated to Rapid Rehousing and Housing Choice Vouchers will ensure persons experiencing homelessness have access to rental housing supported by these projects.
