Ryan Loofbourrow - Continuum of Care
Continuum of Care
Homelessness is a destination - not a people or a culture where they came from. It is where they ended up. When we look at all the people who have arrived at this destination, we must have a system that addresses individuals and their particular situation that got them to homelessness. To have this happen, it takes person to person contact. One person approaching another and meeting them where they are. In the homeless community, there are categories of issues, but always individual stories. Someone who can make the connection, make a call, and find the location and the people who can help that person in their current situation. Some who are experiencing homelessness, due to mental health or loss of hope in the system, need specialized assistance in finding and accepting the help they want and need.
