10 Housing First Housing First is an approach that centers on providing homeless people with housing quickly and then providing services as needed. What differentiates a Housing First approach from other strategies is that there is an immediate and primary focus on helping individuals and families quickly access and sustain permanent housing. This approach is consistent with what most people experiencing homelessness want and seek help to achieve.

11  Consumer choice and empowerment  Recovery and veteran-centric principles  Separation of services and housing  Services are voluntary and flexible  Community integration  Low-barrier and recovery-oriented  Emphasis is on personal choice and responsibility for decision making. Goal is to help veterans live a healthy life and make better life choices (non-judgmental, solution-focused)  Does not require complete abstinence as a goal of treatment; focus is always on recovery and community integration Principles of Housing First

12 Why Housing First? 1.It ends homelessness. 2.Housing First eliminates the need for costly shelter care and transitional and short-term treatment services aimed at preparing veterans to be “housing ready or housing worthy.” 3.Studies demonstrate that Housing First reduces ER visits, unscheduled mental health and medical hospitalization. 4.Decreases the frequency and duration of homelessness.
