The Alliance has released another community profile in its Community Snapshot series, which profiles effective strategies, programs, and innovations in preventing and ending homelessness from communities across the country. (Author)
The latest Community Snapshot features Wichita and Sedgwick County, KS.  In recent years, the City of Wichita and Sedgwick County, KS have worked collaboratively to create a comprehensive solution to homelessness in the area. Between 2005 and 2009, chronic homelessness declined by more than 60 percent in the Wichita/Sedgwick County area. This decline is largely attributable to the increase in the number of permanent supportive housing units for chronically homeless individuals.  In recent years, the city and county have brought their permanent supportive housing to scale, increasing it by 33 percent.  The strategies implemented by the city and county demonstrate the shift away from managing homelessness toward a system designed to end it.
