The Homelessness Prevention & Response System

The Advisory Council’s goal is to establish a complete and comprehensive system of care; addressing and resolving programmatic and systemic gaps in service will help achieve this goal. 


  • Prevention
    Serves low-income and extremely vulnerable people about to lose their housing.
  • Diversion
    Serves people who have lost housing and are facing imminent entry into a shelter or sleeping outside.
  • Retention
    Ensures that people that previously experienced homelessness and have been placed into permanent housing retain their housing.
