Share

Published on February 11, 2020

Given the lack of progress toward fixing homelessness, it may be time to consider more innovative solutions. One novel idea to help the homeless is to house them in group quarters run by licensed professionals. This program wouldn’t require new public housing and would house more people at a lower cost.

 Discussion Questions:

  1. What are some other innovative solutions for reducing homelessness?
  2. What factors lead to the prevalence of homelessness in various metropolises?
