Housing First ApproachStreaming Video - 2009
By 2015, homelessness may be a thing of the past in Portland, Oregon. Taking a "housing first" stance, Portland has reversed the cause-and-effect approach to urban renewal by first securing homes for its homeless residents and then helping them solve the problems that made them homeless to begin with. In this program, Victoria, British Columbia, applies Portland's public policy to its own homeless population. Can the comprehensive and collaborative Portland model be transplanted to this once-quaint seaside city and restore the dignity and stability of its dispossessed?
