Hillsborough County presents 10-Year plan to prevent and end homelessness

On Monday at Hyde Park United Methodist Church in Tampa, the Homeless Coalition of Hillsborough County (HCHC) organized an informal question and answers forum. The Q&A followed a presentation by Tampa-Hillsborough Citizens Task Force on Homelessness as they unveiled their recommendations for a 10-year plan to stave off and end homelessness in Hillsborough County. The audience which came to the forum was comprised mostly of individuals from the agencies and organizations, both public and private, involved in the developmental stages and the eventual implementation of the 10 year plan.

In addition there were several members of the Occupy Tampa movement present who opined about the 10-year plan as well as recounting their experiences of being homeless in Hillsborough County.
