The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has released Strategic Action Plan on Homelessness, a follow up to the 2003 plan, Ending Chronic Homelessness: Strategies for Action. This plan refines the goals and strategies in the Administrationâ€™s effort to end chronic homelessness. This new strategic plan identifies four key goals:
Prevent episodes of homelessness within the HHS clientele, including individuals and families;
Help eligible, homeless individuals and families receive health and social services;
Empower our state and community partners to improve their response to individuals and families experiencing homelessness; and
Develop an approach to track Departmental progress in preventing, reducing, and ending homelessness for HHS clientele.
