What is homelessness? What is the Housing First model, and why does it work for ending homelessness? Is ending homelessness in New Zealand achievable?

Dr Sam Tsemberis is from New York and he is the founder of the highly successful Housing First model, which is used by the five services in the Housing First Auckland collective.

We were privileged to host Dr Tsemberis in Auckland recently to do some training with frontline workers from our services.

While he was here, Sam took time out of his busy schedule to help us create this video so that we can help all New Zealanders better understand homelessness and what Housing First is, how it works and why it works compared to other approaches.
