to rebuild the lives of the homeless in Columbus & Franklin County


We use an outcome-based funding model that measures performance, monitors programs' success, and assures the system's effectiveness to serve 12,000 of Columbus and Franklin County's most vulnerable citizens each year.

We lead a coordinated, community effort to make sure everyone has a place to call home.

We bring together 20 agencies across Columbus and Franklin County, Ohio to work together as a cohesive system for change, driving:

  • Strategy – to prioritize and position innovative solutions in alignment with planning efforts by federal, state, and local agencies
  • Accountability – through data and compliance monitoring for all public funding from federal, state, and local levels, as well as private sector funding
  • Collaboration – within the homeless system, between other systems of care, and across the community
  • Resources – from federal, state, and local levels in both the public and private sectors

We maximize effective and efficient use of resources to achieve the best possible collective impact for Columbus and Franklin County. With the support of a compassionate community, our system of care served 15,000 people last year with homelessness prevention, shelter, street outreach, rapid re-housing, and permanent supportive housing.
