The 10-year Plan to End Homelessness is a long-term action plan and collaborative effort between the City of Portland, Multnomah County, and various nonprofit organizations and private service agencies that provide assistance to homeless people. All are partners in the “homeless system” and have a direct stake in providing effective and efficient services, with a goal to end homelessness in the City and County by 2015.
The 10-Year Plan's vision is that the institutions that serve people experiencing homelessness must change. Rather than shuffling homeless people from service to service and back to the street, the aim must be to first get homeless people into permanent housing.
