Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness in Palm Beach County

This plan, put into place in 2008, outlines a strategy to design, fund and develop permanent housing solutions for our homeless population. Until our housing solutions come to fruition, however, it is important that our current systems enhance how individuals and families are connected to services and temporary supportive housing options, which are critical to both attaining and maintaining long-term independence. This plan creates an integrated, countywide response to ending homelessness that encourages and supports collaboration, offers long-term solutions and is fiscally responsible. It is presented as a living document, one that will evolve as additional needs are recognized, as solutions are identified and as progress is made.

The objective of the Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness in Palm Beach County is to create a local homeless response system that will completely eliminate homelessness. The plan is presented in the form of seven goals. In order to meet these goals, a comprehensive set of action steps have been developed which address current gaps in services, particularly as they relate to a number of underserved populations whose specific needs are not currently being met by those services available in our community.
