USING DATA TO MAKE OUR CASE:

Through Home Not Found, the largest cost study ever conducted to analyze the public cost of homelessness and the Silicon Valley Triage Tool, we are able to understand the true cost of homelessness in this County, predict outcomes and use pubic resources to more efficiently help the most vulnerable individuals.

HOW CHANGE WILL HAPPEN

In Santa Clara County, 7,500 people are without a home on any given night. Of those, 2,500 are considered chronically homeless. The solution is this: permanent, sustainable housing for all, and resources built to last for the long term. It’s time to stop managing homelessness, and end it.

We are achieving this by moving forward with a three pronged Community Plan to End Homelessness Community Plan to End Homelessness.

THE SOLUTION

Housing First is a homeless assistance approach that prioritizes providing people experiencing homelessness with permanent housing as quickly as possible – and then providing voluntary supportive services as needed. Rapid-Rehousing and prevention services are effective intervention methods for individuals and families who have recently become homeless or who are at risk of homelessness.
