What do we know about ending homelessness? If many of the homeless shelters in North America have not been effective in leading people to permanent housing, then what programs and strategies have proven helpful?

We review here only a few of the exemplary programs that address homelessness. (For a full review, including other strategies such as outreach, self-help housing and advocacy on behalf of homeless communities, see Glasser & Bridgman, 1999.)
