And here’s what’s being said about it:
“This book is essential reading to both people new to the movement to end homelessness and folks who have been in the trenches for many years.”
Michael Stoops, Director of Community Organizing
National Coalition for the Homeless
Outreach clinicians, social workers, case managers, and concerned community members are provided with a pretreatment guide for helping homeless couples, youth, and single adults. Chapters explore policy and research accompanied by narratives that trace a person’s journey from homelessness to housing and beyond. The inter-relationship between Homeless Outreach and Housing First is examined in detail to inform program development and hands on practice. Pretreatment Guide for Homeless Outreach & Housing First shares 5 intricate stories from the field to elucidate effective ways of helping, while demonstrating how the most vulnerable among us can overcome trauma and homelessness.
