Just Released: Western MA Opening Doors Plan to End Homelessness

The Western Massachusetts Network to End Homelessness is proud and pleased to present Western Massachusetts Opening Doors: A Collective Impact Framework to Prevent and End Homelessness.

This Plan is a product of extraordinary collaboration among dozens of Network partners, in conjunction with Simtech Solutions and Waypoint Consulting, and was made possible by the Commonwealth’s support.

As summarized in the Plan:

Rare, brief and non-recurring.   That is what homelessness must be if we are to declare ourselves successful in responding to it.   This Plan offers us a path to get there.

Western Massachusetts Opening Doors establishes a framework for the region to rigorously evaluate our ability to provide right interventions at the right time, and to continuously improve the ways we provide services and housing to people in need. The Plan defines where we are according to baseline data, where we want to go as defined through benchmarks and targets, and how we will get there using a data driven, outcome-oriented approach that employs best practices and establishes accountability.

We look forward to continuing down this path together.  Thank you for joining us!
