Consumer Choice in Housing First

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


The work of Hansen-Löfstrand and Juhila adds significantly to the critical thinking that is starting to be done about Housing First. In particular, their work helps us begin to think specifically about what it means to use Housing First in the European Union and the need to think about how American ideology and culture influences American service design. Alongside the strengths of Housing First, which on current evidence does appear to provide a solution to chronic homelessness of unprecedented effectiveness, it is important not to lose sight of the need to constantly appraise the use of the Housing First approach in Europe.
