Our goal for our community is that homelessness is brief, rare, only occurs once, and that everyone has a safe place to call home. Innovative solutions require increased collaboration regionally. Local and tribal governments, nonprofit organizations, faith-based communities, and other stakeholders are working together to address homelessness throughout the region. Individuals can also make a difference.
