About HHN


Every day, news articles appear on the issue of the growing problem of people in America not having a place to legally call their home.  If you are like me, you want to learn what is being done to address the problem. 

So I'm asking Google to send me links to every article in the American press that mentions either of two key words: homelessness and Housing First.  I'm going to spend part of my time reading the articles, and posting the links here of those which report on solutions which seem like they could be implemented here in Santa Rosa.

So check back here periodically, and read what I have found.
