I think CNN’s Anthony Bourdain needs to write a guide on how to live in America on $7.28 per day.
If that homeless agency partners with housing developers—or becomes a housing developer—in order to promote a true “Housing First” approach, then perhaps communities will embrace the idea that permanent supportive housing is good for their neighborhood.
I do believe that homeless programs have a significant role to play in ending this country’s homelessness. As traditional homeless agencies shift their focus to Housing First strategies, they move away from becoming a forgotten Sony Walkman tape player and closer to being a modern Apple iPhone.

What do these actions really mean for America? Are we giving up on ending homelessness for all?
We need more creative ideas for how to provide housing for our neighbors who sleep on our streets.
In a city filled with hundreds of thousands of millionaires, does it really matter that instead of 54,000, we have 36,000 people squandering on our streets like animals?
Being an agency that grows bigger and smaller at the same time is, in my opinion, a realistic way to ensure effective services.
