Synopsis: Professor Dennis Culhane of UPenn is a nationally recognized social science researcher with primary expertise in the field of homelessness.  His homelessness work has positioned him as an early innovator in the use of administrative data for research and policy analysis, particularly for populations and program impacts which are difficult to assess and track.  Culhane’s work has resulted in federal legislation requiring all U.S. cities and states to develop administrative data systems for tracking homeless services in order to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  His work has also been instrumental in a national shift in how cities address chronic homelessness and family homelessness. World Homeless Day takes place each October. 

About Our Speaker: Dennis Culhane is the Dana and Andrew Stone Professor of Social Policy at the School of Social Policy and Practice at The University of Pennsylvania, a Senior Research Associate at the Center for Population Studies, and served as the Director of Research for the National Center on Homelessness among Veterans at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs from 2009 – 2018. Culhane was also named Faculty co-Director for UPenn’s Cartographic Modeling Lab (CML) after his involvement in the Early Warning Information System (EWIS) for New York City in 1996.

Culhane’s work has resulted in federal legislation requiring all cities and states to develop administrative data systems for tracking homeless services in order to receive HUD funding. His work has also been instrumental in a national shift in how cities address chronic homelessness and family homelessness. Culhane’s recent research includes studies of vulnerable youth and young adults, including those transitioning from foster care, juvenile justice, and residential treatment services. On December 1, 2019 CBS News’ “60 Minutes” program aired an interview with Culhane about homelessness in Seattle. Here’s the video of his interview with Anderson Cooper.
