Opening Doors

I’m excited to announce that on Tuesday, June 22, the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) will release the nation’s first comprehensive strategy to prevent and end homelessness titled “Opening Doors: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness”. The Council is an independent agency composed of 19 Cabinet Secretaries and agency heads that coordinates the federal response to homelessness. “Opening Doors” will serve as a roadmap for joint action by Council agencies to guide the development of programs and budget proposals towards a set of measurable targets.
