“Ending Chronic Homelessness”

Homelessness has been a constant factor in American cities as financial or personal hardships cause individuals and families to lose their places of residence. Veterans, women, and children have been particularly hard hit, and homelessness has severe and complex health and educational impacts on individuals, families, and cities. What planning and programming are taking place to eliminate homelessness in Boston, and how can we think differently about the causes and effects of having our neighbors living on the streets, in cars, and in shelters?
