Blue Door CEO says programs that prioritize and strategically pour resources into preventing homelessness come at a fraction of the cost.
As a preventive measure for our health, we are encouraged to visit our doctor for a yearly checkup. Similarly, we are encouraged to lock our doors and have proper lighting around our homes and vehicles to prevent crime.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said when we look at the housing and homelessness sector. We’ve traditionally put all our resources into ‘reacting’ to homelessness once it has occurred rather than prioritizing and strategically pouring resources into preventing homelessness.
