Housing First, Harm Reduction & Overdose Prevention - CLOSED

Presented by Shawn M. Lang, AIDS Connecticut

Housing First is an approach to ending homelessness that centers on providing people experiencing homelessness with housing as quickly as possible – and then providing services as needed. The CT Department of Housing is promoting this model for all types of supportive housing including housing for people with HIV. Housing First is low threshold housing, meaning that things like sobriety can no longer be used to screen people out. Harm reduction provides a set of strategies, principles, engagement techniques to successfully house people anywhere on the abstinence to use continuum.
