Homeless Outreach & Housing First: Lessons Learned
From the author of Homeless Narratives & Pretreatment Pathways
Jay S. Levy brings us a new educational resource entitled Homeless Outreach & Housing First: Lessons Learned. This monograph features three written works on homelessness inclusive of an article on moral, fiscal, and quality of life considerations, a new story entitled "Ronald's Narrative: The Original Housing First", and an interview that was originally featured in Recovering The Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing. These three documents provide a rich and fertile resource for learning, reflecting, and informing needed action that promotes high quality outreach services and housing stabilization for the most vulnerable among us. The Reader will...
