Duncan Casey discusses the housing first initiative
Housing First is an innovative approach to tackling long term homelessness that was developed in the United States during the 90’s. It operates with one simple principle — provide housing first, then combine this with support services in the areas of physical and mental health, education, employment and substance abuse.
