The City of Tucson has been working to address homelessness by providing necessary resources for local agencies and programs.  In the effort to fight homelessness in our community, the Housing and Community Development Department is continuing to learn what programs are working, what kinds of barriers are inhibiting progress and by using new approaches to meet the challenges encountered.
