"Ending chronic homelessness in ten years is the lofty task set out by the Interagency Council on Homelessness...Rather than shuttling expensively from shelter to prison to hospital, the homeless will get a place they can more or less call home. And the government will save money...The US Conference of Mayors has endorsed the ten-year plan, reflecting a change of emphasis at the local level, too. Cities such as Philadelphia, New York and Chicago have started to try to move their chronic homeless from shelters to supportive housing of one sort or another."
