Evicted from Opportunity

27 million people in the U.S. were evicted from their homes in 2015. Eviction is a phenomenon that harms individuals, families, and entire communities, and it’s associated with negative outcomes such as gentrification, the reproduction of poverty, and increasing rent. In addressing this issue, the Center for Housing and Community Studies is pursuing research examining how eviction, in comparison to other social determinants, affects the health and and educational outcomes of children.
