Home at Last?
Here is a good 25-minute feature on Housing First presented by PBS. If you have time, you may want to take a look and get some more insight into the pros, cons, and dilemmas of this policy. It also includes a segment on “facts and figures” and many other links and resources on homelessness, including two interesting additional video segments, one on the new rising group of “middle class” homeless who lost their jobs and homes in the economic crisis, and a second one that shows a radical solution for homelessness, moving homeless people into foreclosed houses. Finally, here is the Housing and Urban Development page with all the statistics on Colorado homeless.
