To end homelessness, focus on women

download (1)From Amy Sawyer, of the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness:

At its core, Opening Doors, the federal strategic plan to prevent and end homelessness, is powered by an understanding of people’s strengths and experiences, and the need to provide them with the right housing and services opportunities at the right time. This nuanced approach to ending homelessness is key to meeting the unique needs of everyone in the community at risk of or experiencing homelessness. To truly end homelessness for everyone, we must understand and fully respond to the many experiences, needs, challenges, goals, and ambitions of all women experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis.
