Sussex Freeholders endorse plan to end homelessness

acf86.jpgOn December 19, 2007, over sixty people attended an early morning meeting of the Sussex County Board of Freeholders where the Sussex County Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness was unanimously endorsed. Susan M. Zellman, the Freeholder Director, pictured on the right, expressed her support and gratitude for the hard work undertaken by the “Sussex County Continuum of Care, Sussex County Comprehensive Emergency Systems (CEAS) Committee, and Sussex County Human Services Advisory Council (HSAC). All of these groups have adopted this plan, which will be used to guide future homeless services planning and housing development in Sussex County.”

Betsy Towle spoke about the Ten Year Plan’s “mission is to create safe, affordable, permanent housing for those individuals currently homeless, including chronic homeless individuals, and to ensure that these individuals receive flexible, comprehensive services to prevent a return to homelessness. As outlined in the Sussex County’s Ten Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness, this is accomplished through active collaboration of county and local government, mainstream service and housing providers and other community members combined with the utilization of available state and federal funding sources.”
