As the problem of homelessness escalates, private funders struggle to define the most appropriate role they should play in addressing one of our nation's most pressing and visible social problems. Through surveying and compiling the opinions of Massachusetts funders, this report documents funding trends in homelessness throughout the state. By examining government policies and spending patterns, the report attempts to place these trends in context. The analysis and the questions that conclude this report are designed to help develop an appropriate future role for funders in addressing this problem.
