The Ten Year Plan  

A Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness is a local and statewide campaign in regions across the country seeking to engage all sectors of society in a revitalized effort to confront and overcome homelessness in America. Each Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness provides solutions and options for communities committed to ending homelessness rather than just manage it.

In 2006, over 80 Southeastern Connecticut community members met to discuss and design a Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness in the region. This was done through a collaborative effort of individuals representing a variety of public institutions, agencies, services providers and the homeless and formerly homeless. The Southeastern Connecticut Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, Next Stop, Home, was released on November 30, 2006. This plan provides the region with clear vision and achievable goals for ending homelessness in Southeastern Connecticut by 2016.

The Status of the Plan:

The beginning of 2010 marks the beginning of the fourth year of implementation of the plan. Every January since the implementation, the Southeastern Connecticut Partnership on Housing and Homelessness has presented an annual report of the status of the TYP. The most recent presentation took place on January 28, 2010 and was well attended by local community leaders and state and local level political leaders. The presentation included accomplishments and challenges of the third year of implementation, a moving personal story of a resident of the Thames River Community Service Supportive Housing Program, and a legislative ask of the state representative and senators.
