Study Acronym
Funding Agency NCATS NIH HHS,NCATS NIH HHS
Primary Research Focus The current paper discusses results from one component of a year-long study of a new 38- unit, single-site HF program located in Indianapolis, Indiana. The stakeholders were particularly interested in understanding HF’s ability to improve social integration of residents, and therefore, this was a major goal of the study. The primary questions guiding this arm of the study were: (1) What changes in residents’ social network size and quality occurred over the course of the first year of the program’s services?; (2) How did residents perceive changes to their social networks and social support?; and (3) How were changes in social networks and support related to housing attainment?
