SAN ANTONIO (February 10, 2020) – The City of San Antonio Department of Human Services, in conjunction with the South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless (SARAH), has partnered with Homebase/Center for Common Concerns to conduct an assessment of the current homeless response system, perform a gap analysis, and help develop a 5- to 10-year Homeless Strategic Plan to enhance the City’s current efforts.

“Homelessness is a complex issue and can be difficult to understand. Ending homelessness is not an easy task. Everyone in the community has a role to play, and we need bring our community together to better understand the problem,” District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran said. “We invite you to come out, and have these discussions as we work together to put a plan into action to solve homelessness. Together, we can make sure that San Antonio’s values and vision are represented and that your voices are heard to make a safer, stronger community.”
