This edition includes items published in 2012 that are listed topically for easy reference. The list is not exhaustive but does represent a cross-section of materials available. Eight publications from NCHE including issue briefs, research summaries and data collection reports are detailed. The bibliography also references products issued by related Federal agencies and organizations on homeless families, children and youth as well as scholarly articles and studies.Closing the Gap: Integrating Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence Experiencing Homelessness: A Toolkit for Transitional Housing Programs
