thank you!

Years from now, we will look back on this event as marking the moment when Housing First went from being an experiment on the fringes of practice- viewed by some as one of those crazy ideas that would never work- to an established and central part of the effort to end homelessness and to reach the most vulnerable people...So everyone here in attendance today can now say that you were there at that critical turning point when Housing First went mainstream, and when all of you true believers, went from outsiders on the fringes of practice, became the insiders and leaders of a national movement.
