Lewin Group, 2004
This series of bar graphs illustrates the costs of supportive housing, jail, prison, shelter, mental hospital and hospital use in the following nine cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, San Francisco and Seattle. Supportive housing was shown to be the first or second-most cost-effective option in all nine locations. These graphs were produced by the Lewin Group for the Partnership to End Long-Term Homelessness.
