The Grant County Homeless Taskforce is a coalition. The coalition is an alliance of individuals and organizations that come together to address issues of homelessness. Interested persons are encouraged to contact Chilson if interested in learning about the Taskforce.
The Mission of the Grant County Homeless Taskforce is to advocate for the homeless people in Grant County in order to improve quality of life, increase public awareness of issues of homelessness, impact public policy and to prevent and end homelessness.
The Homeless Taskforce Vision focuses on realizable strategies to move homeless individuals and families beyond shelter to permanent housing and self-sufficiency by looking at a comprehensive range of needs and develop the local capacity to meet these needs. The Taskforce identifies ways to coordinate and link resources to avoid duplication by involving stakeholders with a shared goal of building a comprehensive system to end homelessness and prevent return to homelessness.
