About the Author
Gregg Colburn is Assistant Professor at the University of Washington, where he studies housing policy, housing affordability, and homelessness. Clayton Page Aldern is a data scientist and policy analyst based in Seattle.
"Colburn and Aldern's analysis is essential and convincing, providing a framework for understanding the root causes of homelessness."-- "San Francisco Examiner"
"The book's central question is this: What might explain the substantial regional variation in per capita homeless rates in the United States? The answers may not surprise everyone, but the authors' route to their conclusions will both inform and inspire. . . . There is plenty of material in the book for individuals wondering how to advocate for affordable housing, churches discerning giving or leasing land for housing, and communities that want to be proactive and avoid a housing crisis."-- "Christian Century"
