A Road Home: 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness

 Nearly 1,400 people experience homelessness on any given night in Washington County.   Homelessness is a community concern with no jurisdictional boundaries and can best be addressed through a 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness and implemented through collaborative partnerships to care for this most vulnerable population. A 10-Year Plan is the cornerstone to developing strategies, programs, and activities that can best assist homeless families and individuals move to housing and self-sufficiency.

Today most American communities plan how to manage homelessness – not how to end it. Ending a complex problem like homelessness requires a commitment from all members of our community – government officials, faith and civic groups, philanthropies, businesses, housing and service providers, and concerned individuals.

On June 3, 2008, the Board of Commissioners approved the 10-Year Plan.
