Successful and Proven Real World Solutions to Reduce Homelessness

March 7

Learn proven strategies to decrease homelessness in your community - and save tax dollars while doing it.

Many communities in the USA are facing the acute negative challenges of homelessness, especially large metro areas and communities within the southern Sunbelt. The condition of homelessness has become very costly in terms of lost human capital, increasing governmental costs, overcrowding of jails, suppression of economic development and the expensive misuse of emergency rooms. The good news is by using a ‘systems approach' many communities have been able to dramatically reduce homelessness, increase street graduation rates, reduce the rate of new homelessness, and reduce the misuse and overcrowding of jails and emergency rooms. You'll gain excellent ideas to start combating homelessness in your community today.
