Okaland's Plan to End Homelessness addresses both general and specific types of homelessness to help the county's 1,293 total homeless. In general, the plan's goals are prevention through stability, affordable housing through an increase of at least 30 units of affordable housing each year, greater access to medical care, public awareness about the issue and data collection to measure success. Prevention and new housing will help families that are homeless as well as intervention and the ability to retain housing. For the 137 chornically homeless, the plan recommends an increase in permanent supportive housing, discharge planning, employment resources, supportive services and outreach programs.
