Homelessness - Information & Resources
Homelessness Services & Housing Opportunities Advisory Committee
City Manager Atteberry convened the Homelessness Services and Housing Opportunities Advisory Committee in November of 2019 to explore the possibility of expanding and/or developing new homeless services facilities in Fort Collins. The group includes 21 members, some with extensive professional and personal experience around homelessness and some building their understanding along the way. Meetings will occur roughly twice per month through summer 2020 to discuss options and provide recommendations.
The charge of the advisory committee includes the following focus areas:
- Understanding current conditions
- Considering response models
- Opportunities and trade-offs of a co-located services model
- Strategies to address and mitigate challenges
- Determining criteria for site feasibility
- Considering potential locations
Committee meetings are open to the public and materials are available online.
