This edition of the Leadership To End Homelessness Audio Conference featured a Housing First program that provides housing and support for chronically homeless individuals with substance use disorders. New York City's Project Renewal was awarded 1 of 11 Chronic Homelessness Initiative grants by the Departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Health and Human Services (HHS), and Veterans Affairs (VA) in 2003. The grants helped create In Homes Now, a program that identifies chronically homeless individuals whose primary disabling condition is a substance use disorder, places them in scattered-site apartments, and provides comprehensive services. Diane Esper, Director of In Homes Now, describes the program and how it overcame some of the unique challenges to serving this population.
