The Chicago Continuum of Care – an inclusive network of over 200 public and private organizations and individuals concerned with homelessness in Chicago- has come together to create a plan to end homelessness in the next ten years titled “Chicago's Plan 2.0 - A Home for Everyone”. The plan outlines three strategic initiatives:

  1. Expand the range and availability of prevention strategies, increase their immediate accessibility, and improve their long-term effectiveness
  2. Expand the availability of affordable permanent housing, increase its accessibility and transition the existing tiered shelter system into a Housing First system.
  3. Provide transitional services that ensure linkage to community resources, and increase the availability and awareness of formal community supports.
