In city after city, state after state, communities are working together to end homelessness. The broad vision articulated by the National Alliance to End Homelessness four years ago, and made more detailed and concrete since then, has proven to be a catalyst for change, igniting a nationwide movement to bring twenty years of homelessness to an end. By developing detailed plans to end homelessness, activists, providers and policymakers are moving forward in their communities. The challenge now is to put those plans into operation?not piecemeal, but throughout all the systems that have an impact on the problem. We have models, we have effective programs, we know more than ever about what needs to be done. While we need to continue to expand this knowledge implementing plans to end homelessness will require going to scale, so that the good models that we?ve developed (are adopted more broadly). This must be done in the homeless assistance system, of course, but also other systems, that have contributed to homelessness. Systems such as corrections, child welfare and substance abuse treatment need to adopt policies and incentives to ensure that everyone leaving a residential institution is ready with sustainable housing. Systems such as mental health treatment and TANF need to commit to outcomes that include stable housing for the people they care for. The progress we have made over the past four years has been remarkable, drawing allies in business, government at all levels, and the nonprofit community. The building consensus that homelessness is not acceptable, that it is a problem with a solution within our grasp, is about to take a leap forward. Come to Washington this July and join us to share how our plans and yours are leading to success.
