(WTNH) — A new study by the Yale School of Public Health shows that using local hotels as temporary housing for people experiencing homelessness provides more than just shelter in a crisis.

Yale School of Public Health Professor Sten Vermund joined News 8 to further discuss how these findings could change the way homelessness is addressed in the future.

He’ll go into what the findings mean, how the study was conducted, and what might this all means for society as a whole.
