Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness

In partnership with the Yolo County Board of Supervisors and the Cities of Davis, West Sacramento, and Winters, City of Woodland staff has participated in the development of a Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness in Yolo County.  Local Ten-Year Plans to End Homelessness are encouraged by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness and are result-oriented plans that incorporate cost-benefit analyses, prevention, housing and services innovations, and best practices.

Throughout 2009, city staff, service providers, lenders, business owners, city council members, police officers, mental health professionals, and local citizens have actively discussed the issues causing homelessness.  The result of these efforts is a collaborative and strategic plan for addressing homeless in Yolo County and its Cities in a ten year period.  The Yolo County Ten-Year Plan,  One Piece at at Time: Ending and Preventing Homelessness for Yolo County Residents, was adopted in early 2010.
