Why Housing First?

"...Housing First is first and foremost about being truly attentive and respectful of what people experiencing homelessness need and want. It means being active and mindful listeners to our customers. And what have our customers told us time and time again? They want a home, a community of support, and the chance to live a self-determined and unconstrained life..."
