Hamilton, Canada Surveys Its Homeless In Effort To Find Them Housing

The city of Hamilton in Canada recently undertook an effort to count all of its homeless population. 

The survey is part of a nationwide effort to try to identify and then find permanent housing for the country’s homeless. 

We take a look at what Hamilton is doing to eliminate homelessness and see how that compares to U.S. cities like Chicago with Amanda Di Falco, manager of Homelessness Policy and Programs with the City of Hamilton and Kat Johnson, director of the Institute of Global Homelessness at DePaul University.
