Our incredible progress has
proven that Opening Doors is the right plan and that it works.
Since the launch of Opening Doors in 2010 we’ve changed the
trajectory of homelessness in America – our progress as a nation is clearly
documented by the reductions seen in the annual Point-in-Time Count.
Opening Doors works because we developed the plan together, because we’ve
implemented it together, and because the Plan brought the right people to the
table—providers, practitioners, policy-makers, advocates, and people with
firsthand experience of homelessness—from all over the country and from every
level of government and the private and not-for-profit sectors.
As we embark on the fifth year
of implementation of Opening Doors, we realize that not only is Opening
Doors still the right plan, but also that our progress is accelerating and
gaining momentum. We believe that every strategic plan should be a living
document, strengthened by new information and lessons learned through
To capitalize on the momentum,
we are considering amending Opening Doors to include critical
new information we’ve gained from our progress.
Your input is essential to the
ongoing success of Opening Doors, and we thank you for taking the time to provide your valuable ideas and feedback. We truly appreciate your partnership.
