The Housing First model is cost effective because homeless persons who are permanently housed use expensive hospital emergency services much less often than those on the street, and they also place fewer demands on the criminal justice system and the social services system. Studies show that 85% stay housed (a percentage that is consistent with the experience of my agency – Partners In Housing), and many go on to earn income and progress toward self-sufficiency.
