Homelessness Survival Strategies Lab

Welcome to our lab!

The Homelessness Survival Strategies (HSS) lab seeks to better understand how and why individuals experiencing homelessness access resources, as well as the survival strategies they employ. An earlier project phase focused on the hygiene and sanitation practices and strategies of unhoused people dwelling near waterways in San Diego, California. Our current work examines survival strategies and service access in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
