Plan To End Community Homelessness

The Plan to End Community Homelessness 2010 updates and expands upon Austin ’s 2004 Plan to End Chronic Homelessness. The 2004 plan focused on one segment of the homeless population – the chronically homeless – who has both an extended history of homelessness and significant barriers to self-sufficiency. The 2010 Plan substantially expands the scope of planning to include the entire continuum of the homeless population, from those at immediate risk of becoming homeless to the chronically homeless.
The Plan addresses community homelessness by focusing on four Critical areas:
  • Prevention
  • Short-term Homelessness
  • Long-term Homelessness
  • Highly Effective Coordination

ECHO membership unanimously voted to approve the Plan at the Quarterly Membership Meeting on April 16, 2010.
