Philadelphia’s Five Year Strategic Plan for the Homeless Assistance System

The new five-year plan for Philadelphia’s homeless assistance system demonstrates new resolve to tackle homelessness in all its complexity. The plan is pragmatic and actionable. It reflects a dramatic shift toward a strategic, system-wide approach that coordinates efforts, reduces duplication and increases efficiency, especially in the use of resources.
