A Homelessness Prevention Agenda


From: Ending Homelessness in Canada


In the conclusion James Hughes reiterates the need for systemic change to prevent homelessness. In his word " preventing homelessness requires the implementation of a range of diverse system changes that all start with better methods to identify homelessness risk" he re asserts the solutions offered in the chapter before and affirms that while solutions are in place more are needed and the time for action is now.
