This is our course resource page on Homelessness. Many argue homelessness is symptom of other problems, just as lack of income may be one symptom of not having a job. In this case the best solution for homelessness may be to find and/or train for a new job. Two NGOs that focus on job search and training are ATD Fourth World in Paris and Madrid (see Banerjee & Duflo 2019, p 234) and Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles. Both of these groups focus on moving homeless or returning citizens into productive employment (see their web pages).
