This report outlines a region-wide approach to refocus Minnesota's collective problem-solving on an issue that has so far overwhelmed county-based planning and policy: homelessness. The report also outlines statistics and trends related to homelessness in the 7-county Twin Cities metro area. Topics discussed include facilitating the coordination of county policies; strengthening and coordinating existing Continuum of Care planning; promoting funding alignment and setting and monitoring region-wide goals. In terms of needs assessment, the authors discuss economic context and county policies, the needs of people experiencing homelessness and capacity and planning. The authors recommend the creation of a regional "Committee to End Homelessness." (Authors)
