UPDATE - Bring LA Home! campaign status
update from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority's
"The Continuum" - Winter 2005
"Following the September release
of a draft Framework of the 10-year Strategic Plan
the Blue Ribbon Panel of Bring LA Home chose to
form a smaller executive committee to refine the
and prioritize the plan’s broad recommendations.
During the winter months the executive committee
met three times with the assistance of facilitator
John Ott. The committee clarified their commitment
to ending homelessness for all persons; however,
as this is such a monumental task , the committee
will initially proceed with three focused plans
1. Ending Chronic Homelessness;
2. Ending Homelessness for Families with Children;
3. Prevention of Homelessness by Mainstream Systems.
have been established to address each of these
areas, and progress is being made. To
meet an impending HUD deadline, the Workgroup
to End Chronic
Homelessness will be presenting a plan for
adoption by the Blue Ribbon Panel in May."
