Before joining Marist College in Fall 2009, Jay Bainbridge was Assistant Commissioner of Policy and Research at the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS). Dr. Bainbridge contributed to a variety of major initiatives at DHS, such as the evaluation of the agency's then-new prevention programs, the writing of two reports on the health of the homeless, and the designing and running of the Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE), New York City's annual street count involving thousands of volunteers and city workers. Prior to his work at DHS, Jay worked as a researcher and consultant for a number of organizations including the National Center for Children in Poverty, the Columbia University School of Social Work and the Child Care Action Campaign. Jay has a bachelor degree in Mathematics from Cornell University, and both a Masters in Public Administration and a Doctorate in Social Policy from Columbia University. He has also taught research methods, statistics, policy analysis, and social welfare policy at such institutions as Columbia University, Barnard College, and New York University.
Dr. Bainbridge’s research applies statistical and research methods to public sector problems. His current research focuses on trends, causes and solutions to homelessness, especially with respect to the street homeless, and he continues to consult on homeless services policy and planning for national and international cities. Working with Bloomberg Associates, he recently guided the first systematic street counts internationally in Mexico City, Bogota, Paris and Athens.
He has published in reputable journals such as the American Journal of Public Health on topics related to homelessness prevention, aging of the homeless population, and the health of the homeless.
