This video from Time provides a quick, accessible primer on housing first, a model of supportive housing. The video focuses on housing first as a tool to reduce chronic homelessness and the public costs associated with it. It features Dr. Sam Tsemberis of Pathways to Housing and other members of the supportive housing community. Through a profile of one particular tenant, the video illustrates how supportive housing can transform the lives of those most vulnerable among us.
