Community Evaluations & Planning

Since the demographics of homelessness, and therefore its solutions, vary in every locality, ending homelessness will require the development of local plans to systematically and quickly re-house those who lose their housing. In order to develop local systems that do not tolerate homelessness, two things must happen. Accurate administrative data must be developed to understand the nature of homelessness and its solutions, and long range planning must take place with the goal of ending homelessness. 

Successful community plans are evidence-based; have measurable and ambitious outcomes and key milestones; are learning, living and adaptive documents; and are the product of an inclusive community process that engages key players in the local homeless system, including people with lived experience.
