This three-part series takes a closer look at homeless encampments and interim measures for addressing the homeless crisis. Through the research and experience of academics, policymakers, and advocates—including those who have experienced houselessness and those providing critical services—this series will examine current initiatives, how policing and social services play out in the streets, and models from other cities. The goal: to prompt a more informed, compassionate citizen response as we work towards the longer-term goal of building more affordable and supportive housing. Full details here.
