Statement in Response to USICH's "Expanding the Toolbox" Report

The Framework has now been restructured around five Action Areas: Unsheltered People, Shelters, Housing, Diversion and Prevention, and Strengthening Systems for the Future.
The new version brings greater focus to the future vision we all need to strive for in our responses, and more clearly expresses the priorities for strengthening systems for the work that lays ahead. The Alliance encourages readers to download and read this important strategic planning document.
