Our vision is a Santa Cruz County in which every community member has some form of safe shelter, and where homelessness is a rare occurrence.

Our mission is to improve the way Santa Cruz County works collaboratively to reduce and ultimately end homelessness.

Our Goals are to:

  • Create broader and more diverse community engagement on homelessness.
  • Improve public understanding of the realities of homelessness in Santa Cruz County.
  • Foster community dialogue on homelessness that promotes dignity and respect for all.
  • Develop better communication & coordination among those concerned about and/or working on issues related to homelessness.
  • Share information about proven, successful models and solutions working both here and in other communities.
  • Sustain a diverse community leadership group to carry forward this work of shaping policies and developing resources to reduce and end homelessness.
  • Develop a shared vision for change and agreed-upon action steps.
