Vision: No on in Billings has to be homeless. Everyone in Billings has access to tools and opportunities for safe, appropriate and affordable housing. Mission: The Mayor's Committee on Homelessness has partnered with local organizations and community members to develop and implement a comprehensive ten-year plan in the pursuit of ending chronic homelessness in the Billings community.
The Mayor’s Committee on Homelessness began meeting in June of 2006 following Mayor Tussing’s charge to develop a 10-Year Plan to address the needs of the chronically homeless in Billings. The Committees’ 10-Year Plan to Impact Chronic Homelessness, Welcome Home Billings, was designed to increase overall collaborative efforts and resources to assist the most vulnerable population in our community. More housing, better service coordination, additional work opportunities, and responsible discharge planning are all needed to address this problem. To this end, the Mayor’s Committee on Homelessness provides information, data, and recommendations to guide the community’s overall effort to impact homelessness and enhance sustainable housing and service solutions that actually work.
The Mayor’s Committee on Homelessness is committed to developing innovative ways to impact and eventually end homelessness in Billings and believes that collectively we can make a difference!
Meetings are open to the public and community participation and attendance is always welcomed.
