On April 13, All Home launched a Regional Action Plan (RAP), which aims to reduce homelessness in the Bay Area by 75% within three years.
The press conference held on Tuesday and attended by our Executive Director Sherilyn Adams, All Home Founder and CEO Tomiquia Moss, All Home Chief Partner Officer Ken Kirkey, Bay Area Community Brandy Jenkins-League, and Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez, tackled the homelessness issues we face in the Bay Area, the implementation of resources, and the framework of the program.
First of its kind, this regional approach will implement a 1-2-4 framework: for every one unit of interim housing, there would be two units of permanent housing and four units of homelessness prevention. This framework rethinks the how existing resources and will not only reduce the number of people experiencing homelessness but will also reduce the risks of becoming homeless.
“This plan will slow the number of people entering homelessness and move more people into permanent housing. And we can create a Bay Area where parks and Bart stations are not bedrooms,” Sherilyn Adams said. “We can also ensure that every young person in the Bay Area has a chance to get on their feed and lead, healthy, productive lives.”
