Effects of a Short-Term Housing Program on Homeless Young Adults’ Resilience and Risk
Longitudinal Exploration of Pathways to HIV/STI Risk Reduction among Homeless Young Adults through a Youth-Centric Rapid Re-Housing Program
The proposed study is a longitudinal exploration of pathways to resilience and HIV/STI risk reduction among homeless young adults ages 18-24 (YAEH) through a youth-centric rapid re-housing program (YRR). Results will identify causal processes through which YRR programs affect YAEHs’ resilience and HIV/STI risk, build a foundation for a large-N study to test these mechanisms, and inform community responses to reducing health disparities in HIV/STIs among a high risk and vulnerable population by helping communities improve their interventions for YAEH.
