Housing First in TED talk
by Larry Geller
I’ve wanted to post the slides from Dr. Sam Tsemberis’ visit to Hawaii about two years ago but I haven’t succeeded in locating them yet.
Tomorrow, Dr. Tsemberis will discuss Housing First with Beth-Ann Kozlovich on The Conversation, so not to upstage that, but to provide some background in advance (? … ) here is a TED talk from 2012 that is a good, light, introduction. It doesn’t have the detail on the support services I’ve been looking for, but I’ll find and post that soon.
There is plenty of background and data out there for the googling if hearing the discussion tomorrow raises your curiosity.
Notice, in the talk, the reference to the importance of supports and adequate housing. Honolulu is planning nothing like this.
