The Homelessness Plan development process is underscored by the CoC and City’s commitment to making homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring in our community. The intention of this process is to develop clear goals and strategies grounded in evidence-based best practices to help reduce homelessness in the City. The final plan will serve as a roadmap for addressing the homelessness crisis in Pasadena.
Draft Homelessness Plan
The Draft Homelessness Plan creates an initial framework and sets aggressive targets for reducing homelessness in Pasadena over the next five years. Reaching these targets will require the collective action of the community around proven, evidence-based strategies and innovative approaches that maximize available resources. Founded on the commitment to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring, this Plan aims to establish an equitable, accessible, and compassionate system for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. The plan was developed with input from more than 415 stakeholders and subject matter experts.
