How to help the homeless? Give them a home.

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 21 October 2015

Moira Lawler General Manager of Lifewise, an Auckland based organisation which gives support to the isolated and marginalised says there are massive accommodation gaps that are not being met - and there is no plan for them; and Dr Sam Tsemberis, the founder of Pathways to Housing in the U.S. His model - which is achieving great success in a number of U.S cities - is simple....give the homeless homes, no questions asked and provide them with counselling. Dr Tsemberis is here ahead of the Impact Conference on housing, in Wellington tomorrow.
