Partners Ending Homelessness
On June 4, 2007, Guilford County's ten year plan, Partnering to End Chronic Homelessness in Guilford County, was unveiled to the public. The result of a comprehensive and focused effort by the community, the Guilford County Task Force to End Homelessness was convened to improve the quality of life for all residents of Guilford County by ending chronic homelessness and reducing all types of homelessness by 2016.
Partners Ending Homelessness encourages public understanding about homelessness and coordinates a strong system of care to increase self sufficiency in Guilford County.
From 2010 to 2011, there was a 29% decrease in the number of families experiencing homelessness in Guilford County. On Wednesday, January 25, 2012, Partners Ending Homelessness conducted Guilford County's annual Point in Time Count, which revealed that 1,005 individuals experience homelessness on any given night with 81 of those individuals experiencing chronic homelessness.
