Effectiveness of permanent supportive housing and income assistance interventions for homeless individuals in high-income countries: a systematic review

A systematic review, meta-analysis, and narrative synthesis to investigate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of permanent supportive housing and income interventions on the health and social wellbeing of individuals who are homeless in high-income countries. Permanent supportive housing and income assistance interventions were effective in reducing homelessness and achieving housing stability.  Permanent supportive housing had no measurable effect on the severity of psychiatric symptoms (ten studies), substance use (nine studies), income (two studies), or employment outcomes (one study) when compared with usual social services.
