Mission & Vision


The Journey Home’s mission is to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring. The plan brings together public and private stakeholders and concerned citizens to work on permanent solutions to homelessness.


We re-commit to solutions that will help end homelessness for the people who are experiencing it today and solutions that will help make the condition of homelessness a rare, brief, and nonrecurring circumstance if it cannot be prevented.

We commit to strive to reach the goals laid down in the Action Plan on Homelessness and will do so by executing the strategies described under the plan's action items.

We further commit to build upon the positive steps we have taken over the past 5 years and resolve to follow the plan’s implementation timeline and check our progress through numeric outcome measurements.

We believe that the condition of homelessness is not permanent. Ameliorating this phenomenon in a meaningful way requires attention to the four fundamental causes of homelessness: lack of affordable housing, inaccessible health care, inadequate incomes, and a lack of coordinated services. The Journey Home remains focused on these issues.
