Subject: Housing the Homeless Can Save Money – 60 MINUTES
GIVING APARTMENTS TO THE CHRONICALLY HOMELESS CAN SAVE TAXPAYER DOLLARS, ADVOCATES SAY – “60 MINUTES”
The “100,000 Homes Campaign” Has Already Gotten 80,000 People Off The Streets
Advocates for the homeless say providing apartments to those who have been on the streets the longest and are at greatest medical risk can actually save taxpayers money. Even if these people have not yet received treatment for substance abuse or alcohol problems, getting them off the streets often keeps them out of hospitals, where the cost for one night is more than a month’s rent in many places. Anderson Cooper reports from Nashville, one of the cities that have joined the 100,000 Homes Campaign, for a 60 MINUTES report to be broadcast Sunday, Feb. 9 (7:00-8:00PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
