Homeless housing program surpasses goal

Posted: Friday, Jul 18th, 2014

SANTA CRUZ The 180/180 initiative in Santa Cruz County celebrated surpassing their goal of housing 180 chronically homeless people and announced their new goal of ending chronic homelessness in Santa Cruz County by 2020. The celebration, held at the Simpkins Swim Center in Santa Cruz, included city and county elected officials, law enforcement and judicial representatives, local business leaders, and 180/180 initiative partners, said 180/180 Director Phil Kramer.

The 180/180 initiative was launched in May 2012 as a multi-agency, collaborative community effort to identify, house and support medically vulnerable homeless individuals and families. With support from an array of service-provider organizations, government agencies, faith-based groups, businesses, and volunteers more than 200 people were housed since the start of the campaign thus surpassing the 180 goal.
