Yesterday, the Indianapolis Continuum of Care and CHIP unveiled the Indianapolis Community Plan to End Homelessness 2018 - 2023, a five-year plan that includes a set of long-term solutions providing the types of systemic reforms necessary to take a truly collaborative approach to end homelessness in our community and serve as a catalyst to developing real solutions for this urgent need.
The goal of the five-year plan is that by 2023, any individual or family in Indianapolis who become homeless will spend no more than 30 days without a permanent, safe, affordable place to live.
As a city, our approach to ending homelessness can no longer stop with simply providing temporary shelter or transitional housing. We must increase affordable housing and supportive services so that the most vulnerable members of our community have a place to call home.
