Project 50: Four walls and a bed



Part 1
Identifying and finding the hard-core homeless, then cajoling them to accept housing, proves a daunting challenge.

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4
The project succeeds with most, and many clients say it's saved their lives. But for others, old patterns are hard to shake.
