Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness (ICPH) is an
independent nonprofit public policy analysis and research organization
based in New York City. The Institute produces publications and content
designed to illuminate the complex issue of family homelessness, and
inform and enhance public policy related to homeless families, with an
emphasis on the impact and outcomes on children.
ICPH focuses its work on homeless families, as well as those living
in extreme poverty, examining the demographics of this growing
population, the challenges these families face in becoming
self-sufficient, and the programs that are most effective in helping
them transition out of homelessness. Working with programs and partner
organizations across the country, the Institute disseminates these
findings to policy makers at all levels of government, colleagues in the
research community, advocates, and educators, to promote a robust,
evidenced-based dialogue and positively influence services and policy
toward homeless families.
