TED: The Housing First approach to homelessness (Lloyd Pendleton)


What do you think would happen if you invited an individual with mental health issues who had been homeless for many years to move directly from the street into housing? Lloyd Pendleton shares how he went from skeptic to believer in the Housing First approach to homelessness -- providing the displaced with short-term assistance to find permanent housing quickly and without conditions -- and how it led to a 91 percent reduction in chronic homelessness over a ten-year period in Utah.

This video was produced by TEDMED. TED's editors featured it among our daily selections on the home page.

Lloyd Pendleton wants to eliminate chronic homelessness.

Lloyd Pendleton began his career as Director of Utah’s Homeless Task Force in 2006 with the goal of functionally eliminating the state’s chronic homelessness problem within 10 years. In his 2016 TEDMED Talk, Lloyd shares the inspiring account of how Utah's Housing First program reduced the number of chronically homeless from 1,932 to 168 in just 10 years.
