Secure housing is a basic human need. Without a stable home, feeding ourselves, finding work, and building a life are next to impossible. Some communities across the country are already providing supportive housing to those who face homelessness or who struggle with chronic illnesses, both physical and mental. The results are astoundingly positive, resulting in less homelessness; reduced incarceration rates; lower rates of substance abuse; improved support for growing children; reduced health care, emergency, and justice spending; and greater participation in the legal economy.
