This is the description provided by KnowledgePlex.
Housing First describes programs that help homeless people move as quickly as possible into permanent housing and then provide supportive services to help them maintain housing stability and connect with other resources in the community. Housing First approaches range from programs that provide permanent supportive housing to people with mental illness and substance use disorders, to those that provide short term housing assistance and case management to homeless families. KnowledgePlex teams up with the National Alliance to End Homelessness for this two- part Expert Chat series. We will provide examples and explain key features of Housing First programs for advocates, housing and homeless assistance providers, state and local government officials, and others involved in planning and implementing strategies to end homelessness.
