Addressing Family Homelessness
The Lincoln Homeless Coalition worked with the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) to develop a local plan to address family homelessness in our community. Lincoln was one of only two cities in the nation invited to work with NAEH on the pilot project to develop this type of plan and turn our collective expertise into action!
Read the completed Community Plan.
Following the NAEH assessment, the Coalition developed the following goals to address family homelessness:
Goal 1: Implement a community-wide assessment to identify the most appropriate, affordable, actionable housing options as quickly as possible.
Point Person: Jeff Chambers, UNL-Center for Families, Children & the Law, email@example.com
Goal 2: Strengthen local resources to increase employment options for the homeless.
Point Person: Aaron Bowen, Community Action Partnership Lancaster & Saunders Counties, firstname.lastname@example.org
Goal 3: Decrease homelessness among youth.
Point Person: Chris Webster, Lincoln Public Schools, email@example.com
Goal 4: Increase the number of landlords and realtors who are housing people experiencing homelessness.
Point Person: Lee Heflebower, Community Action Partnership of Lancaster & Saunders Counties, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Lincoln Homeless Coalition is seeking additional community stakeholders who are interested in joining our efforts. If you would like to become a part of addressing family homelessness, please contact the point person for your goal of interest.
