This chapter provides a critique of shelter-based responses to homelessness, and the emergence of housing led solutions to homelessness. The chapter documents this shift to a nuanced and evidence-based understanding of homelessness, whereby a new and effective toolkit for ending homelessness had become available, changing the context in which policy was being developed, leading to the adoption of strategic plans to end homelessness.
