(approved 2021) for the Supportive Housing Services measure
In 2022, the Joint Office of Homeless Services is convening a Supportive Housing Services Advisory Committee to advise the office and the programs supported by the office on implementation of the Supportive Housing Services measure.
Collaboration: We recognize our interdependence as individuals and as an organization, and approach our work with a spirit of partnership and shared power with those experiencing homelessness and other stakeholders.
Equity: We commit to achieving equity for all individuals. We acknowledge the existence of structural racism and develop, implement and evaluate policies and practices that achieve equitable outcomes with a focus on eliminating the disparities that people of color experience. We believe that focusing on racial equity will allow us to more effectively serve all communities.
Inclusion: We foster within our office and within the community that we serve a culture of safety and belonging that ensures that the voices of people who have been historically excluded, including people of color, women, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA2S+, and others experiencing homelessness, are truly heard and shape the direction of our work.
