The recommendations in the Street2Home Framework to Action have been provided by Barbara Poppe and Associates. Ms. Poppe assessed the Fresno community’s overall strengths and opportunities and advised on proven practices that have been shown to reduce homelessness in other communities.
The process was guided by a steering committee and feedback sessions with community leaders that helped shape a set of recommendations that demonstrated feasibility and high impact, ultimately resulting in the Framework to Action. This Framework is structured in Four Pillars: 1) engage community & align resources, 2) reduce inflow to homelessness, 3) improve crisis response, 4) expand permanent housing options.
The Framework to Action does not represent the end of the process but rather the beginning. It provides the framework to move forward. The entire Fresno community—leaders, service providers, funders, and residents—need to be a part of the solution.
