>The Denver Commission to End Homelessness has produced the “Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness.”   The Plan is intended to be a catalyst for action by the full community to come together to end this epidemic. The short-term goal is a 75 percent reduction in chronic homelessness in five years; while the long-term goal is to end homelessness in Denver. The commission focused on eight core goals as a means to understand and overcome the obstacles to homelessness and include: 1) Permanent and Transitional Housing, 2) Shelter System, 3) Prevention, 4) Services, 5) Public Safety and Outreach, 6) Education, Training and Employment, 7) Community Awareness and Coordinated Response, 8) Zoning, Urban Design and Land Use.
