The Bassuk Center

Our Mission

Services are essential for housing stability

The Bassuk Center continues the pioneering work of Ellen L. Bassuk, MD who has documented the role of trauma and mental illness in family homelessness. Her work has shown how services for families are essential for long-term housing stability.

We support local communities and organizations as they provide stable housing, wellness, and opportunity for marginalized individuals, families, and youth. Our research-based solutions meet health and mental health needs that undermine social stability and disrupt childhood development.

We see a day when everyone in America has a safe and decent place to live, the health and mental health care they need, and economic and social opportunities that allow them to thrive.
