Each chapter is designed to be a starting point for a wider conversation, with discussion questions and a number of think pieces and international case studies to help students connect these general principles to their own surroundings. Written by renowned housing expert Peter King, The Principles of Housing succeeds in being accessible and engaging without shying away from the complexities of housing issues. The book will be invaluable to students on housing-related courses across finance, real estate, planning, development, politics and sociology subjects.

Housing First guides organizations through the implementation of the evidence-based Pathways model to end homelessness and teaches how to apply it in ongoing work with those who have co-occurring severe mental health and substance use disorders. Developed by Pathways to Housing National, this internationally adopted model advocates providing housing first, followed by other services for homeless people with co-occurring disorders: team-based psychiatric, addiction, and employment counseling. This manual details the principles of the "Housing First" approach, using case examples and a checklist to ensure fidelity of implementation and day-to-day practice. It shows how the operations of Housing First embody the program's philosophy, offering tools for assembling and managing the two commonly used models of support service teams; securing property and engaging landlords; assisting clients in setting up their apartments; and incorporating other evidence-based programs, such as integrated dual disorders treatment (IDDT) and Supported Employment.
