SCANPH’s Property and Asset Managers Working Group* Presents
2008 Brown Bag Series:
What do we mean by “Housing First”?
Emerging in the early 1990s, the term’s
basic premise is that homeless and at-risk
people and families are best served by
moving into permanent housing, with
comprehensive services provided to help
them with the challenges they face in their
lives after they have a permanent place to
live, rather than housing them first in
shelters or transitional housing as a
prerequisite to moving into permanent
The use and definition of the term Housing
First has been tailored over the years by
affordable housing developers, property
managers, and the supportive services
industry. As mission driven CDCs,
supportive services, begin to partner in
order to more effectively serve the most
vulnerable populations, we need to know
how each part of this industry, as well as
how individual practitioners, have come to
understand “Housing First”. We at PAMWG
think it is important to discuss how that
understanding affects our partnerships and
the policies, operations and bottom line
success of our organizations. This brown
bag meeting is an informal gathering of the
professionals who are grappling daily with
the realities of housing people facing some
of the greatest challenges. Join PAMWG for
this exciting discussion!
