This organization also aims to raise awareness of the need for economic assistance, as well as to spread the message to every participant the psychological notion of self-initiation.

Study taken of homeless

Study taken of Homeless

  • Since 1991, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) has identified households experiencing "worst case needs" across the United States. PD&R's most recent biennial report, Worst Case Housing Needs 2007: A Report to Congress, uses American Housing Survey data to highlight the demographics of families experiencing worst case needs, the availability of affordable housing stock to these families, and the poverty levels and residential patterns of neighborhoods where these renters live.

  • A family experiences worst case needs if it does not receive housing assistance and meets two criteria. First, the family must have very-low income, earning less than 50 percent of the area medium income (AMI), or extremely low income, earning less than 30 percent of AMI. Second, the family must have a severe rent burden (paying more than 50 percent of the family's income towards rent) and/or live in severely inadequate conditions with regard to plumbing, heating, electrical, or upkeep.

  • Nearly 6 million households (5.91) experienced worst case needs in 2007. This is an 18 percent increase from 2001 when only 5.01 million households faced this difficulty. Of these households, the report highlighted the following:

  • 93 percent have severe rent burdens (5.48 million households), the primary cause of worst case needs.

  • 73 percent have extremely low incomes.
