Community Plan to End Homelessness

The Community Plan to End Homelessness serves as our roadmap for addressing our region’s crisis.

Since 2015, we have taken significant steps towards addressing homelessness in our community. Yet, the crisis remains entrenched because the systemic factors driving homelessness – from growing income inequality to a severe lack of affordable housing – are stronger than ever.

The 2020-2025 Community Plan to End Homelessness serves as our newest roadmap for addressing our homelessness crisis. Built upon input from more than 8,000 community members, people with lived experience of homelessness, service providers, and advocates, and grounded in evidence-based practices and lessons learned, the plan is organized around three main strategies:

Strategy 1

Address the root causes of homelessness through system and policy change

Strategy 2

Expand homelessness prevention and housing programs to meet the need

Strategy 3

Improve quality of life for unsheltered individuals and create healthy neighborhoods for all

In addition to laying out a roadmap of strategies to prevent and end homelessness, the Community Plan set aggressive targets to achieve by 2025.

Here’s what our community has accomplished so far:

This progress is helping us significantly narrow the gap between how many households are becoming homeless, and the number of households exiting homelessness. We are curbing the growth of the crisis in our community, but we still have work to do to turn the tide on ending homelessness.

Achieving our Community Plan goals will require tremendous effort, new partnerships, and innovative strategies – and it will require the entire community to be a part of the solution. However, the need for bold action has never been greater.

Every member of our community deserves a safe and stable home—and it is our collective responsibility to make this vision a reality.
