Heading 1

"Matthew Desmond, author of the best-seller, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City (2016), founded The Eviction Lab at Princeton University in 2017 when he realized the need to collect national data on evictions to address fundamental questions about poverty in America. Understanding the sudden, traumatic loss of home through eviction is foundational to understanding poverty."

"The videos linked out below tell the story of Eviction, putting faces to the cold, hard numbers of this epidemic. Through sharing these stories, we can begin to understand and effectively address eviction, homelessness, and poverty in America. They are perfect complements to our national campaign at Family Promise to raise awareness of family homelessness as we ask, “What Does Home Mean to You?”
