Heading Home St. Louis County

In order to fully coordinate homeless funds in St. Louis County, it was our collective vision that there would be one advisory body that would eventually oversee all Federal, State, and local homeless funds. The newly formed advisory committee would have both City of Duluth and St. Louis County appointed members. City and County staff held multiple community forums in order to gather feedback and support for the new collective vision. In December 2011, Heading Home St. Louis County’s Leadership Council held their first meeting. This Leadership council has 15 appointed members, 6 from the City of Duluth Council, and 9 from the St. Louis County Board of Commissioners. This newly appointed Leadership Council is charged with:
• Monitoring and advisement of homeless funds
• Staying current with local needs and gaps
• Best practices to prevent and end homelessness

This increased coordination and collaboration will only strengthen our ability to prevent and end homelessness while maximizing all funds and targeting their use.
