There are important lessons here.
Words from Chris Megison: ”In the wake of the “end homelessness” movement and the push by national advocates and even HUD to move away from transitional housing and replace with housing first, rapid rehousing and harm reduction designs, I found this video to be a compelling “pause” button in their crusade. These five courageous individuals beat homelessness through a transitional housing model and now all live in their own apartments with their once homeless kids. ……. Not all transitional housing is bad. Lets calm the rhetoric down some folks and have some discernment.”
I’m thinking through this approach.
