“Coming Together to End Homelessness” estimates the city invests $32 million a year into the sector and notes charities in the “broader social safety net” contribute about $550 million in relevant services.

The strategy focuses on data analysis, a by-name priority list, co-ordinated services and information sharing between agencies for calibrated responses to each person’s situation.

There’s also an emphasis on “diversion” from shelters via rapid rehousing or other services, such as transitional, supportive housing and “intensive case management,” as well as preventing homelessness in the first place.
