Homeward 2020 October 2019 Update to the Community

2018-2020 Ten Year Plan Update At-A-Glance

Together
we will make homelessness
Rare, Short-lived and Non-Recurring

Homeward 2020 is a collaborative, strategic think-tank guiding implementation of Fort Collins’ 10-Year Plan to Make Homelessness Rare, Short-Lived and Non-Recurring by setting priorities, developing alignment and action plans, and suggesting policy. Together, we are making progress by using best practices and building coordinated responses to end homelessness.

We know that the only true end to homelessness is a safe and stable place to call home.

Looking Ahead to 2020 – Community Action Strategy 2020!

In 2020, following implementation of the final phase of Fort Collins 10-Year Pan to make Homelessness Rare, Short-Lived and Non-Recurring, Homeward 2020 will capitalize on the organization’s decade of disciplined research and system development, application of key evidence-based models, data collection, consultation with local and national experts, and ongoing, collaborative community work.

Working with the community, we will develop a Community Action Strategy identifying solutions to end homelessness based on performance targets, existing assets and persistent gaps, prioritized next steps and partnerships, and identify resources to leverage and layer towards the effort. The goal is to secure a sustainable and effective system response to homelessness in Fort Collins.
