My Son is Schizophrenic - the "Reforms" I have Worked for have Worsened His Life

Welcome to our Kim Wilson Housing library. This library collection contains research studies, reports and books related to housing vulnerable populations. Come back often as we update the collection on a regular basis.

    Tim is homeless. But when he was a toddler, my colleagues in the Connecticut state legislature couldn’t get enough of cuddling him.

And unless something changes, the policies of today’s generation of policymakers will keep him there.
