Homelessness is a rapidly growing challenge throughout the United States. Recent, pre-COVID data from the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) documents a 16% increase in homelessness nationwide—including a 22% increase in unsheltered homelessness—under Housing First; a one-size-fits-all policy.

“People First” exposes the need to overhaul this disastrous policy on behalf of the homeless and on behalf of Texan communities.

Centered on effectiveness, compassion and accountability, TPPF’S “People First” plan includes policy reforms that support the homeless in addressing the underlying causes in order that they, and the communities in which they live, can realize their full potential.
