A Brief Plan to End Homelessness

Reflecting The Partnership’s priorities, approach, and framing, the key pillars of The Partnership’s plan to end homelessness are:

A Housing First model to assist eligible families and individuals in retaining and obtaining appropriate and affordable housing.

Funding low-barrier access to health and behavioral health services (mental health and substance use disorder services), emotional support, and timely benefits assistance so as to improve the likelihood that a family or individual retains their current or future housing.

Offering ready and flexible access to vocational training/placement and educational support, which will help individuals and families grow their resources and independence and thereby improve their chances of staying out of shelter once housed and ending a cycle of homelessness.
