In this 40 page article, Richard Cho argues that homelessness emerges as result of fragmentation across systems, and becomes a ‘default’ category for people who fall through the safety net of public systems. The article then explores strategies for overcoming system fragmentation and integrating systems to prevent homelessness among people leaving prisons and jails, borrowing the strategies—frame reflection, transformative learning, and boundary spanning—from the growing body of literature around collaborative planning and policymaking processes. Finally, the article describes how plans to implement these strategies emerged within a recent collaboration between the New York City Departments of Correction and Homeless Services, presenting this case study in light of its promise as a model for engaging in systems reform and integration.
