Housing First / Rapid Re-housing
In the UK, the government asked many major businesses to come up with a ten year plan to end SIA course homeless problem; and one of the results of this was a "Housing first" solution, also known as "rapid re-housing", which quickly gets a hom eless person permanent housing of some sort and the necessary support services to sustain a new home. There are many complications of this kind of program and these must be dealt with to make such an initiative work successfully in the middle to long term. This is supported by First Housing Aid and Beyond Shelter.

 

Supportive housing
Supportive housing (Supported by Corporation for Supportive Housing) is a combination of housing and services intended as a cost-effective way to help people live more stable, productive lives. Supportive housing works well for those who face the most complex challenges—individuals and families confronted with homelessness and who also have very low incomes and/or serious, persistent issues that may include substance abuse, addiction or alcoholism, mental illness, HIV /AIDS, or other serious challenges to a successful life. It is successfully used by the City of Edinburgh Council to deal with housing problems there.

 

Pedestrian Villages
In 2007 urban designer and social theorist Michael E. Arth proposed a controversial national solution for homelessness that would involve building nearly carfree Pedestrian Villages in place of what he terms "the current band-aid approach to the problem."  A prototype, Tiger Bay Village, was proposed for near Daytona Beach, FL. He claims that this would be superior for treating the psychological as well as psychiatric needs of both temporarily and permanently homeless adults, and would cost less than the current approach. It would also provide a lower cost alternative to jail, and provide a half-way station for those getting out of prison. Work opportunities, including construction and maintenance of the villages, as well as the creation of work force agencies would help make the villages financially and socially viable.
