Preventing Homelessness

Prevention is the single most cost-effective and humane intervention for addressing homelessness. Many people who become homeless could have remained in their homes and returned to self-sufficiency with some limited assistance. Our community has helped many people remain in their homes thanks to the efforts of this partnership. >> more

Unsheltered Outreach

Our community works every day to provide shelter, services and support to those who live unsheltered in the woods or on the streets. Because of the collaborative efforts of the partnership, no unsheltered individuals died in FY 2011 due to hypothermia. We are pleased to be able to provide programs that seek to engage people in services that they need and, ultimately if they are interested, get them housed. >> more

Community Partnership

The 10-Year Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness was written by the community, and all efforts to implement the plan belong to the community. With this in mind, nearly every step that has been taken has been made by a consortium of partners from the business, faith-based, nonprofit and local government communities. >> more
