The City of St. Louis is on the cusp of virtually eliminating chronic homelessness. The number of chronically homeless persons has declined as housing and other resources have come on line over the past eight years. We now believe that innovative approaches to housing and service provision will result in stable housing being available to every chronically homeless person in the City of St. Louis by 2015. System-wide improvements in engagement, assessment, case management, and data management will make it possible for the City of St. Louis to prevent today’s at-risk person from becoming tomorrow’s chronically homeless person.
