Ingrid Gould Ellen Releases New Book: How to House the Homeless

News & Events | July 29th 2010

Homelessness is one of the most troubling and persistent social problems in the United States, yet experts can neither agree on its root causes nor on how to eradicate it.  Ingrid’s new book, co-edited with Brendan O’Flaherty, professor of economics at Columbia University, proposes that the answers entail rethinking how housing markets operate and developing more efficient interventions in existing service programs. How to House the Homeless makes clear the inextricable link between homelessness and housing policy, and critically reassesses where we are now, analyzes the most promising policies and programs going forward, and offers a new agenda for future research.
