Homeless Services Plan

The Homeless Services Plan: 2007-2016 (Plan) is the culmination of efforts that began with the Homeless Task Force and the Draft City of Arcata Homeless Shelter and Services Plan (HSU Plan) and Appendices written by the consultant team at Humboldt State University.  The HSU Plan and appendices dated September 12, 2005 contain valuable information, including the history of the plan, services available, gaps in services, zoning and land use issues, potential funding sources for services, as well as the Homeless Task Force subcommittee and minority reports.  These documents are incorporated into this plan by reference.  The Plan lays the groundwork for the City’s efforts to work with the County, Humboldt Housing and Homeless Coalition (HHHC), and other regional partners to end homelessness in Humboldt County within 10 years.  The City intends to continue to work with the County and HHHC in their efforts to draft a countywide plan to end homelessness.
