The Marathon County Housing and Homelessness Coalition is working collaboratively to end homelessness in Marathon County.
- Created a pilot housing program that provided case management, temporary housing and financial assistance to 10 adults and 18 children for a total of 1277 days.
- Increased awareness of homelessness issues for 28 community leaders during a bus tour of local agencies.
- Released the 10-Year-Plan to End Homelessness.
- Continued to support the Wausau Area Warming Center which continues to address a gap in services first identified by the Coalition.
On The Horizon
In 2016, the Housing and Homelessness Coalition will establish priorities and develop a work plan that supports the goals in the 10-Year-Plan to End Homelessness. Conversations and collaboration among providers will continue on how to best use limited resources to address community needs.
