Institute for Children and Poverty - ICP


The Institute for Children and Poverty (ICP) is an independent research and policy think tank based in New York City. With the rising number of homeless families, compounded by the effects of welfare reform and deep poverty, housing alone is clearly an incomplete solution to ending family homelessness. In response, ICP evaluates existing strategies and offers innovative approaches to combat the effects of homelessness on the lives of children and their parents. Since its inception in 1990, ICP has worked in close partnership with Homes for the Homeless (HFH). Using the Institute's research, HFH shapes programs, support services, and policies to meet the complex needs of homeless families. In turn, this mutual relationship allows ICP to respond to changing policies and trends impacting the homeless. ICP's work is multi-faceted, engaged in three areas of action: original research and program evaluation, technical assistance, and outreach and advocacy.
