Emmy Tiderington (Ph.D., New York University; M.S.W., University of Michigan) is an Assistant Professor at the Rutgers School of Social Work and a licensed social worker with extensive 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 to end homelessness and improve outcomes for service recipients. 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, 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 from the National Institute of Mental Health. 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.
