Source: A groundbreaking study suggests giving homeless Canadians homes first saves money
So, giving homeless people homes saves money [and shhhh, it’s the RIGHT thing to do!]…who knew!
Utah, that’s who. They’ve been at it for a while now.
It’s a report that could change the way that homeless people are treated in Canada. Funded by the federal government, “At Home/Chez Soi” is the largest study of its kind, with five years of research conducted in five major cities. It’s estimated that more than 150,000 people are homeless across the country, costing Canadians $1.4 billion each year.
The report suggests putting homeless people in housing, even before they have dealt with other problems such as mental illness and addiction, works to improve their lives. And it saves money.
