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. In Tuesday's report, NPR's Ina Jaffe profiles a California program that finds homes for youth who are "aging out" of foster care.
