The year 2012 was the fifth year of the 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness (10 Year Plan) and the second year of Phase 2. In this phase, the focus is on making deeper, long-term changes to the homeless-serving system. We are pleased to say that exciting progress was made during the first half of the 10 Year Plan.
It is estimated that around 4,500 men, women and children received housing and support in the first five years of the 10 Year Plan. It is safe to say that many of these people would be in the city’s emergency shelters or sleeping outside if they had not been housed.
