Homelessness Commission

Description

In June of 2014, the Metro Council approved Ordinance BL2014-777, which establishes the Homelessness Commission as a permanent body of the Metropolitan government. The Homelessness Commission falls under the auspices of the Metro Social Services Board of Commissioners.

The new ordinance outlines the following duties and responsibilities for the Homelessness Commission:

  • To implement a coordinated and focused approach to ending homelessness and to develop measurable goals;
  • To assure participation of all stakeholders including homeless persons;
  • To maintain accurate, current data on homeless populations; and
  • To educate the public, service providers and other interested parties on issues related to homelessness.
