You have actually contacted College of the Mainland Library, a small community college in Texas. Unfortunately, only COM students can access our databases, so I will not be able to link you to any articles in any of our proprietary resources. Your university will have database subscriptions, so I encourage you to contact a librarian there to point you in the right direction. Your local public libraries will also have databases, if you are a member of any. You would be able to log into them remotely in both cases.

I did do a search in Google Scholar for "transitional housing" AND education. The link is here. You might have access to some of the propietary database articles (like those from EBSCO) through your university library, but there are some open source articles that you might find useful as well. Look for the links out to the right. On the first page, the article from,,,, and might be helpful. Their bibliographies might also provide avenues of additional research.

SSRN, The Social Science Research Network, has some free full text articles. It looks like you have to register, but it is free. The link is here.

You might find useful info in the Statistical Abstract of the United States, here, which compiles statistics from federal agencies like the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Lastly, DOAJ, the Directory of Open Access Journals, includes Social Science journals and you may find it here.

I hope I provided you with some sources to get you started, but again, I encourage you to contact your university library because they will provide access to important scholarly resources. A librarian there should be able to assist you in identifying the best sources for your project.

The links to all resources are in the body of this response, and also included below.

Best of luck-
