In June of 2005, the Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness for the Greater Bridgeport Area was introduced. Included in this plan are achievable goals and a clear vision. The goals include:
 
  1. Improving access to permanent affordable housing;
  2. Creating standards of service based upon the “Housing First Model”;
  3. Aligning regional housing policies with our commitment to ending homelessness;
  4. Developing a regional early intervention system to prevent homelessness;
  5. Coordinating affordable housing with support services;
  6. Improving access to coordinated behavioral health services;
  7. Implementing “wraparound” case management services that are streamlined and well coordinated;
  8. Integrating services and expand access to the workforce development and vocational rehabilitation system; and
  9. Improving access to mainstream entitlements by homeless families and individuals
 
The Greater Bridgeport Area Continuum of Care will take the lead in this effort and will expand their mission in order to do so.
