NPR Special Report: Housing First

For millions of Americans with special needs -- the disabled, the mentally ill, ex-offenders, youth leaving foster care -- a home is a vital first step toward a stable life. NPR News explores the subject in a yearlong special reporting project, Housing First. Today's report, by NPR's Joseph Shapiro, profiles a program that gives a home -- and a second chance -- to people recovering from substance abuse.
