TED Talk With Dr. Sam Tsemberis: Housing First

For my final blog post related to housing first, I wanted to introduce a TED Talk by Sam Tsemberis. If the name looks familiar, it is likely because Dr. Tsemberis is a Greek-Canadian clinical and community psychologist that has contributed to multiple works that I have cited throughout this blog project. He is the founder and executive director of Pathways to Housing in New York City, the earliest housing program modeled after housing first. Pathways to Housing, first introduced by Tsemberis in 1992, was the first program of its kind. The program proved be so extraordinarily successful, and in the following video, Dr. Tsemberis details exactly why.

Hope you all enjoyed the video as much as I did, and until next time,
