Homelessness is a Housing Problem - Presented by Gregg Colburn

Our Path Home was incredibly grateful to have Dr. Gregg Colburn present on his book Homelessness is a Housing Problem back in early November. During the presentation, he clearly summarized the findings from his book and explain regional variation in rates of homelessness throughout the United States. With his research and statistics, he outlines why lack of housing is the reason for homelessness, and not addiction, joblessness, or mental health. Watch this 30min lecture, with Q&A from the audience, where he applied the findings from his book to the unique context of Boise.

Our Path Home, the public-private partnership working to end homelessness in Ada County, operates from the service model and philosophy that permanent housing is the solution to homelessness.
