A Snapshot of Homeless Services in the Mountain West

This project involved interviews of homeless services agencies in 18 cities in the Mountain West that share characteristics with Logan City (i.e.., geographic isolation, population, harsh winters). The project was undertaken at the request of the Logan, UT Local Homeless Coordinating Council (LHCC), and was executed through a service learning project with USU graduate social work students in a research/policy course.
