City Adopts Ninth Point Addressing Families in Homeless Response Action Plan

As we highlighted in last month’s Catholic Charities electronic newsletter, the city of Colorado Springs announced the 2018-19 Homelessness Response Action Plan, outlining eight points addressing the growing homeless population in Colorado Springs. However, the initial plan ignored a very important, but invisible population:  families.
Over the past month, Catholic Charities, along with Partners in Housing, Family Promise, The Salvation Army, and Colorado Health Partners,  developed a white paper which included a recommended ninth point focused on family homelessness.
We are pleased to report the city has adopted the proposal and has added a ninth point which adds emergency shelter and transitional housing units for families experiencing homelessness.
Thank you to everyone who attended a town hall and spoke on behalf of struggling families in our community.
Get all the details about the 9th point of this plan here.
