In 2013, EveryOne Home wanted to see if there were ways to better our system so that we could better r
espond to the Plan and to homelessness in Alameda County. So we began a community planning process to transform our collective response to homelessness by reimagining the nature of our work, our partnerships, and the roles of key stakeholders including consumers, funders, mainstream service providers, housing operators, and homeless assistance providers, holding all these stakeholders mutually accountable for resolving housing crises and preventing homelessness.
We enlisted the help of three to learn more work groups to help lead the effort.
- A Data Synthesis Work Group looked at our data to create models and project the scale and types of housing and components needed for an effective system.
- A Community Input Task Force convened stakeholders at a community Charrette to come up with key ideas.
- A Governance and Structure Committee worked to address the membership and governance policies outlined in the Interim Regulations.
The consolidated work of these groups resulted in recommendations currently being implemented and/or coordinated by EveryOne Home.
