The City of Scranton and Lackawanna County have been working toward a plan to end homelessness since 2002. In 2002 a Sub-Committee to End Homelessness was created with representatives from service providers and other community stakeholders. Through this collaborative effort the “Scranton/Lackawanna County Ten Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness” was introduced in the spring of 2004. Following the suggested elements integral to ending homelessness, this plan focuses on planning for outcomes, closing the front door to homelessness through prevention, opening the back door from homelessness by housing people and challenges the gaps in the infrastructure (housing, income and services) that leads to homelessness and prevents others from getting housing.
