Another faith group weighs in: How to curb chronic homelessness? First, a home! – CSMonitor.com


Permanent supportive housing, a movement to supply homeless people with housing first and deal with their other issues second, has made big strides in reducing homelessness this decade.

The evidence & support mounts up!

The Christian Science Monitor supports Housing First models!

Does your faith promote it too?

After all, it is a compassionate solution that deserves the support of the Feds, State & Local governments but needs the backing (with action being the hands & feet of the God that we all serve) of the faith community to get it done right!

It’s not just about a house though, it’s about change that often comes with the support shown in Love by a faith community!
