Resolving homelessness in Arizona recently received a boost when the Governor's Office added Chronic Homelessness to the Arizona Management System (AMS) Goal Council. Headed by Mike Trailor, Director of the Arizona Dept. of Economic Security, the intent of the Council is to create a collaborative effort comprised of government, philanthropic, business, service providers, community funders, individuals and the faith-based communities. While the Council will ultimately address homelessness for the entire state, an initial strategy is to reduce chronic homelessness in downtown Phoenix by 80% by 2021. Mental illness solutions and permanent supportive housing will be key initiatives for the Council. The Human Services Campus, led by HSC Board President Mike McQuaid, will play a vital role in moving this critically important project forward.
