Our Research

The Homelessness Research & Action Collaborative (HRAC) brings together researchers from across Portland State University to work alongside people experiencing homelessness, advocates, service providers, city and county policymakers and other stakeholders to address issues that lead to and perpetuate homelessness.

Our five research priorities include:

  1. Reducing Homelessness at PSU
  2. Changing Narratives, Creating Action
  3. Innovative Approaches to Supporting People Experiencing Homelessness
  4. Housing as Healthcare
  5. Policy and Program Evaluation
