Coordinating an End to Homelessness
Boulder County recently launched a new effort to address homelessness. The Homeless Systems Collaborative is a joint effort between government, nonprofits, the faith community and people with lived experience to reduce homelessness in the community. This innovative approach follows a national trend resulting in successful housing outcomes and HOPE is a key stakeholder. In the past, homeless services have been spread across a host of providers, with different missions, strategies, and results. The new model improves coordination, aligns resources, and measures success based on the attainment of sustainable housing.
