“Housing First” Approach is Saving Money and Providing Homes for …


See on Scoop.itHomelessness, Housing First

Housing First is currently endorsed by the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) as a “best practice” for governments and service-agencies to use in their fight to end chronic homelessness.

Marvin Heery‘s insight:

Here’s the info on the endorsement of Housing First by the USICH!

 

We’ve been talking about this in posts for a while now & in emails to the CSAH (Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless) Board Chairman & others.

 

Now we see it in plain english from another source!

 

Our comments at the recent (10/17/13) Public Hearing at Savannah City Council encouraging Mayor & Council to consider creating a "homelessness rountable" or other designated forum for addressing homelessness & give it as much attention as they have other isues & model it possibly after the Business Rountable seems to be proper timing.

 

We look forward to a soon-to-be-scheduled meeting with the Mayor (& possibly City Manager) on the subject!

 

Give us your input & let us know if you’d like to be invovled along with the other stakeholders we expect to be at the table!
