Shirley Leung has a really interesting column about how the Pine Street Inn, known for caring for the homeless, has altered its mission to find more permanent homes for the chronically homeless.
It’s not as farfetched as it sounds. A large percentage of the inn’s overnight beds are routinely taken up by a small number of hard-core homeless people, not people simply going through a rough patch and needing temporary overnight housing.
There’s about 300 chronic homeless people in Boston, a surprisingly small number when you think about. So a solution isn’t some pie-in-the-sky dream.
