Our Mission: Open Doors, a coalition raising awareness by building bridges within the community and acting as a unified force dedicated to preventing, reducing and ultimately ending homelessness.
1. Sustain a functional end to homelessness among veterans in the Gulf Coast region;
2. End chronic homelessness in 12 months in the Gulf Coast Region;
3. End homelessness among families and youth by 2020 in the Gulf Coast Region;
4. Ensure systems are in place to prevent and end all homelessness by 2020 in the Gulf Coast Region.
Gulf Coast Region: Harrison County, Hancock County, Jackson County, Stone County, Pearl River County, and George County, Mississippi
Definition of ending homelessness: While it is true that we cannot prevent all housing crises, our goal is to ensure that all South Mississippi citizens have a roof over their heads and that any bout of homelessness is rare and brief.
