End Homelessness?

“An end to homelessness means that every community will have a systematic response in place that ensures homelessness is prevented whenever possible or is otherwise a rare, brief, and non-recurring experience”.

• Quickly identify and engage people at-risk of and
experiencing homelessness.
• Intervene to prevent the loss of housing and divert
people from entering the homelessness services
• Provide immediate access to shelter and crisis
services, without barriers to entry, while permanent
stable housing and appropriate supports are being
• When homelessness does occur, quickly connect
people to housing assistance and services—tailored
to their unique needs and strengths—to help them
achieve and maintain stable housing.”
