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 “Getting Housed, Staying Housed: A Collaborative Plan to End Homelessness.” 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.
