I added another category– this is one for practicing social entrepreneurs. The first link I’ve posted in there is to a NY Times article that was published Dec 28, 2005 about Martin Dunn, who is doing some great work in New York City related to low income housing.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
What he builds is called supportive housing…Supportive housing is aimed at keeping people with disabilities or special needs out of institutions and off the streets by integrating them into buildings with working families as neighbors and offering them a panoply of on-site social services, counseling and supervision. It is a concept embraced by the state and city, which have signed an agreement pledging $1 billion over the next 10 years to such housing.
