The federal strategy to end homelessness

The federal plan to end homelessness: Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness is available on the first page of the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness website at

The key goals are to end chronic homelessness in 5 years, homelessness for veterans in 5 years, homelessness for families in 10 years and to set a course of action that will end all types of homelessness.

Locally in Kansas City the Homelessness Task Force is creating comparable strategies for ending homelessness. We’ve just drafted an outline of the plan. I’ll keep you posted when the final version is available here.
