“Human rights theory holds that all particular rights are universal, indivisible and interdependent and interrelated. As Americans begin to pay more attention to human rights as the proper conceptual framework for our struggle to end homelessness, we are coming to understand the interdependence of human rights in very practical not just theoretical terms. In particular, we are recognizing that housing is health care, and that extension of both rights, together, is necessary for ending homelessness.”
