In the spring of 2004, “Ending Homelessness in Ten Years: A County-Wide Plan for the Communities of Contra Costa County,” was released. Five priorities make up this Plan; when fully implemented, they will enable the communities of Contra Costa County to achieve the goal of ending homelessness in 10 years. The priorities are: 1) help homeless people (re-)gain housing as soon as possible, 2) provide integrated, wraparound services to facilitate long-term residential stability, 3) help people to access employment that pays a “housing wage,” 4) conduct outreach to link chronically homeless people with housing, treatment and services, 5) prevent homelessness from occurring in the first place. Service implementation strategies and action steps are included for each priority.
