The project's outcome measures include consumer satisfaction, clinical outcomes, number of days in the hospital, number of days in jail, use of homeless shelters, and staff turnover. The average length of stay in supportive housing is 11.8 months. Around 75 percent of clients move on to more permanent housing, and 96 percent report an improvement in their quality of life. Almost all participants stay in mental health treatment on a voluntary basis. The average level of functioning of the clients, as measured by Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) scores, has improved by 27 percent. The program has also been associated with significant reductions in the number of days in jail and in psychiatric hospitals, and the use of shelters by the individuals and families served by the continuum has been all but eliminated. The WPIC Homeless Continuum has demonstrated that a high-quality program that serves the homeless mentally ill population can have a tremendous impact on the health status, compliance with treatment, and quality of life of those it serves.
