Dennis Culhane (PSC) was featured in an Penn LDI article about The Rising Power of Administrative Data for HSR Scientists: How Penn's AISP Quietly Pioneered a Revolution in Data Use.
Dennis Culhane was recently quoted in a USA Today article Motels as Homeless Shelters? More Local Governments are Housing People in Motel Rooms. “You have an asset that you can basically just polish up and improve. That makes it a lot faster and probably more affordable than having to start from scratch,” Culhane said.
Dennis Culhane and co-authors have authored a report titled "The Emerging Crisis of Aged Homelessness: Could Housing Solutions Be Funded by Avoidance of Excess Shelter, Hospital, and Nursing Home Costs," as reported by the Penn Today & The Daily Pennsylvanian. The report predicts that the number of elderly homeless people will likely triple during the next decade. While the situation is dire, Culhane says that, with the appropriate funding, it could improve.
