Ad Hoc Committee to end homelessness

About the Committee

The Pierce County Council created the Comprehensive Plan to End Homelessness Ad Hoc Committee to facilitate further planning to help end homelessness in Pierce County through Resolution 2021-30s.

The 10-member committee will meet weekly for four weeks to develop an action plan that will be presented to Council. The plan will outline steps, participants, timelines, process and resource needs to develop the larger comprehensive plan to end homelessness in the county. Although the ad hoc committee's primary role is to develop the action plan, some members may choose to continue to serve as part of the subsequent comprehensive plan development.

Meeting timeline

The committee will meet virtually every week for four weeks starting March 31, 2021. Meetings will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Zoom and are open to the public. For those without Zoom, remote participation is available by dialing 253-215-8782 and using the web ID: 924-1477-0760.
