The United States is facing one of the worst housing crises in its history. The problem has turned homelessness into an epidemic. Not a single state has an adequate supply of affordable homes for renters in the lowest income bracket. On any given night, almost 600,000 Americans are unhoused. The good news is that a solution to this crisis exists.
