Current Efforts

Stanton’s approach to homelessness centers on a coordinated and regional strategy, a proven and promising model, that prioritizes getting people into housing with supportive services throughout the North Service Planning area. We offer access points to get people into housing and supportive services to maintain tenancy skills. Partnership with mutual assistance and cooperation for resources highlights that shared responsibility is key to addressing a complex local but dynamic issue.

March 2021: The City continues outreach efforts to provide unhoused individuals with resources with the goal of working towards permanent housing. Below is a graph reporting on the number of referrals made during the time frame September 1, 2020 - February 28, 2021. 

The City is currently recruiting for a second full-time Outreach Coordinator to work in partnership with our current Outreach Coordinator, expanding our efforts and increasing our ability to facilitate linkages to vital resources.
