Topic: Solving chronic homelessness: Logan Place marks its 10th anniversary in Portland, Maine.

In Portland, Maine, Preble Street marks the 10th year of its housing-first project, which aims to solve, not simply address, the problem of chronic homelessness. Two staff members at Logan Place help define the housing-first model and explore its effectiveness as a therapeutic intervention, which transforms lives. Logan Place, Preble Street’s first residential housing project, has cultivated positive community relations.
