This journal article looks at the role of higher education professionals in responding to homelessness among college students to improve the wellbeing of both students and the institutions they attend. Using data collected from case studies of community colleges and universities, the author proposes three specific recommendations for how to address the basic needs of students on campus. These recommendations involve engaging human resources, streamlining partnerships, and advocating for policy change. (author abstract modified)
