This Plan 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 in ten years. 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.
The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a leading voice on the issue of homelessness. The Alliance analyzes policy and develops pragmatic, cost-effective policy solutions. The Alliance works collaboratively with the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to build state and local capacity, leading to stronger programs and policies that help communities achieve their goal of ending homelessness. They provide data and research to policymakers and elected officials in order to inform policy debates and educate the public and opinion leader nationwide.
