Housing First is an evidence-based practice that looks at housing as a tool, rather than a reward, for recovery. It is an approach to ending homelessness that centers on providing permanent housing first and then providing services as needed and requested. Pioneered by Dr. Sam Tsemberis from Pathways to Housing in New York City, Housing First believes that any person experiencing homelessness is ready for housing. On this topic page you will find resources, research, and information about Housing First best practices.
