Tri-Cities Homelessness & Housing Task Group

Home » About us

About us

The overarching role of the Task Group is to identify, advocate for and coordinate the actions necessary to prevent and address homelessness in the Tri-Cities and build the capacity of service providers and community organizations to respond effectively.

The membership of the Task Group meets once every 2 months in a plenary session for updates on Task Group activities, decision-making and coordination of activities. However, much of the work of the Task Group is done by committees – working groups which meet regularly to pursue specific objectives.
