“Housing First” Homelessness Program

April 5, 2010

Kelley Griffin talks with John Parvensky, president of the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, about the group's new "housing first" program. Instead of requiring that a person receive treatment before they receive housing, the coalition will simply provide low-cost housing with no strings attached, on the theory that people are better able to address their other problems if they first have a place to live.
