Description

HOUSING FIRST: A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO ENDING CHRONIC HOMELESSNESS

Since 2008, a revolutionary approach to ending homelessness has been sweeping America: Housing First. This method has been implemented successfully in cities across the country, and it is coming soon to the Iowa City community. Join author and advocate Zach Wahls to learn more about Housing First, and how it saves taxpayer dollars while simultaneously addressing the worst symptoms of deep poverty.
