Home Together: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness
This federal plan, authored by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness
in partnership with its 19 member agencies, examines the issue of homelessness in America and proposes a plan to prevent and end homelessness in our country. The plan outlines interagency collaboration that aligns mainstream housing, health, education, and human services to prevent homelessness, and proposes a set of strategies that call upon the federal government to work in partnership with the private sector, philanthropy, and state and local governments to employ cost-effective, comprehensive solutions to end homelessness.
