Dr. Matt Hanka's presentation focuses on the issue of chronic homelessness and how the “Housing First” approach using permanent supportive housing (PSH) compared to the traditional “Treatment First” approach has decreased homelessness, improved outcomes for the chronically homeless in terms of access to resources, housing stability, mental and physical health, and quality of life, and has resulted in reduced costs to our public services system.
This presentation will highlight the work of the Commission on Homelessness for Evansville and Vanderburgh County and local homeless service providers, such as Aurora, Inc. and ECHO Housing Corporation, which have been leaders throughout Indiana in providing permanent supportive housing for the chronically homeless in Evansville.
Dr. Hanka's presentation is part of the Liberal Arts Faculty Colloquium and takes place at 3 p.m. on Friday, March 15, 2019 in Kleymeyer Hall.
