Our projects include the Annual Point-in-Time (PIT), a HUD directed activity that has our members go into the streets each January to gather information about our homeless neighbors.
In 2021, we are "solution driven. We are looking for new ways to partner with the public and private sector in order to gather new insights and creative solutions.
Our clients include our neighbors who need homeless prevention services including rent and utility assistance. Our clients include unhoused, homeless, adults, older youth and families with children. Some of our member agencies run homeless shelters. Other agencies run free clinics or provide meals.
