Introduction Homelessness has become an increasing problem in cities around the United States. In Detroit, however, the city is taking a unique approach to combat this issue – they have implemented a “Housing First” policy. This policy focuses on providing homeless people with permanent housing as quickly and efficiently as possible, rather than focusing on temporary shelters or other short-term solutions. The goal of this effort is to give homeless individuals stability and security by moving them into safe and secure homes of their own. In this article, we will explore why Detroit chose to pursue a Housing First policy, what it entails and how it is helping those who are experiencing homelessness in the city find stable housing.
