The Worcester Family Research Project is a longitudinal, case control study of sheltered homeless and low-income housed families and their dependent children in Worcester, Massachusetts. The study was conducted by The National Center on Family Homelessness and the University of Massachusetts Medical Center at Worcester with funding from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau.

The objectives of the project were to: (1) describe and compare characteristics of homeless and low-income housed women and their children; (2) identify risk and protective factors for family homelessness; (3) describe the natural course and consequences of homelessness and residential instability among low-income families; and (4) examine the impact of homelessness and poverty on children.
