Ending Homelessness: Innovative Housing Strategies
Homelessness is fundamentally related to insufficient income and lack of affordable housing. Rising rents, destruction of low-income housing, and cuts in federal housing programs exacerbate the problem. While people experiencing homelessness have multiple needs, their greatest need in order to end homelessness is housing. Having a home provides the foundation for people to stabilize their situation, access services as needed, and regain their lives. In this unit, you will learn how homelessness is created and maintained in our society, and about innovative housing programs that help end homelessness.
