PRA in the News

PRA Senior Project Associate Jen Elder was quoted in the February/March 2018 issue of the Nation’s Health Magazine. In the article,  ‘Housing first’ model making inroads on homelessness: Caring for people who are homeless, she discusses the impact of Housing First:

“Housing first is a matter of values, said Jen Elder, MSc, policy chair for the Caucus on Homelessness and co-author of APHA’s new policy statement. Taxpayer money already goes toward emergency services, incarceration and other consequences of homelessness that could be mitigated with housing first policies. It makes sense to invest in interventions ‘that truly increase positive health outcomes of people and treat them with dignity and respect,’ she said.”
