‘Supportive Housing Is The Solution To Homelessness’ - #1119
Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: http://bit.ly/joindevin. Tori Lyon, the CEO of the Jericho Project, which operates supportive housing units for 2,500 for formerly homeless individuals in New York City, joined me for a discussion about her work. She asserts simply that “Supportive housing is the solution to homelessness.” She explains how operating supportive housing is less expensive than having people live on the streets, where they are frequent flyers in shelters, emergency rooms and jail cells--all of which are expensive to operate. Tory is passionate about finding ways to help even the most challenging residents. She explained how she worked with four different agencies to convince a man living in the woods on Staten Island with five pets to move--with all the animals--into one of the Jericho Project’s housing units. It has been a challenging 18 months. The animals are now gone and he remains housed.
