Quantifying our impact: Evaluating the impact of homelessness services and interventions - the challenges of evaluating long-term impact on client life trajectories

Parity
Volume 28 Issue 9 (Nov 2015)

Abstract: Albert Einstein once said 'not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts'. For too long this sentiment has found resonance in the homelessness sector. A sector stuck between a rock and a hard place of funding requirements to report outputs and a desperate desire to report the profound life impact that services achieve for vulnerable clients.
