Emmy Tiderington (B.F.A, M.S.W., University of Michigan, Ph.D., New York University) is an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at Rutgers and licensed social worker with over a decade of direct practice experience working in housing and case management services for individuals with serious mental illness. Her research focuses on the implementation and effectiveness of supportive housing and other forms of homeless services as a means for ending homelessness and improving outcomes for service recipients. In previous studies, she has examined the individual, organizational, and macro-systemic barriers to “street-level” policy implementation of person-centered care, harm reduction, and the management of risk and recovery in supportive housing. Her work has also explored the mechanisms and processes by which homeless adults achieve recovery from substance abuse and serious mental illness. She is the recipient of the Robert Moore Award for Excellence in Scholarship from New York University, a New Investigator Award from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), an Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation of the Year Honorable Mention from the Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR), and a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship from the NIMH. Currently, she is conducting a three-year study of the implementation and outcomes of the New York City Moving On Initiative. Findings from this study will be used to develop best practices for “Moving On”, a model that utilizes rental subsidies and transitional supports to assist individuals and families with the move from supportive housing to mainstream housing independent of wrap-around support services
