Homelessness Costs More

Keeping homeless people on the street costs the government $20,000 per person. It costs the government $7,800 per person to give them a house and some support, such as case management services. That's $12,200 saved per person with the housing-first model. And the end result – a 72% decrease in homelessness. http://goo.gl/36UcqV #PopNews
