Beyond Planning: Denver, CO's Ten-Year-Plan to End Homelessness
With so many communities reaching the midpoint of their Ten Year Plans to End Homelessness, the National Alliance to End Homelessness is taking an in-depth look at the strategies successful communities use to implement their plans by launching a new series of briefs, Beyond Planning: Promising Practices to Successfully Implement Your Ten Year Plan. The series will examine communities that have achieved reductions in homelessness and other measurable outcomes identified in their ten year plans and will identify the strategies used to transform their homelessness assistance systems.
Denver, CO is the first community highlighted in the series. Denver has experienced tremendous success in implementing its Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, Denver's Road Home. Much of Denver's success can be attributed to a few core practices that any community can replicate, including Denver's approach to drafting its Ten Year Plan, its strategies for leadership, community engagement and accountability, the system infrastructure, and the city's approach to funding its homeless assistance system.
