This past July marked the 5th anniversary of the Homelessness Prevention System (HPS) – a unique partnership between public agencies, private funders and nonprofit service providers – in Santa Clara County.
On September 19, 2022, Destination: Home, Sacred Heart Community Service and our partners gathered together to reflect on this five-year journey and discuss the path forward as the demand for homelessness prevention, and need for continued expansion of HPS, grows.
In addition, Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities at the University of Notre Dame revealed a preview of the results from the first ever study of a homelessness prevention program in the nation, confirming the effectiveness of homelessness prevention strategies.
