Abstract

In 2021, as part of the Indiana University Center for Rural Engagement’s community impact process, we developed a report on homelessness in Greene County, Indiana. Stakeholders in Lawrence County, Indiana, convened by Heading Home of South Central Indiana (a communitywide collaboration working to strengthen housing security and decrease homelessness in this region including Monroe, Morgan, Lawrence, Owen, Greene and Martin Counties) indicated their interest in a similar report for Lawrence County. To provide an overview of homelessness and poverty in Lawrence County researchers used primary data sources, including surveys of individuals receiving services from local nonprofits and interviews of key stakeholders, as well as secondary data from several sources.
