Working in a Coalition that meets quarterly and five work groups that meet monthly, the Oak Park Homelessness Coalition has come up with a comprehensive five-point plan to end homelessness.
Increase support for affordable housing and build community awareness
Expand capacity of specialized/outside of the box homeless housing responses
Align and grow funding to advance the goal of ending homelessness while strengthening attachments to jobs and income
Scale up prevention activities and create new service intersections and coordination
Strengthen community homeless touchpoints and mobilize for advocacy
Using these points as an outline, the OPHC formed five work groups to execute the plan to make homelessness in Oak Park rare, brief and one time. If you are interested in getting involved with any of our five work groups, contact us!
