Community Member Pledge
I pledge to join the Contra Costa Zero: 2016 campaign, and to do my part to end veteran homelessness in my community by December 2015, and chronic homelessness by December 2016.
I commit to working with the campaign and encouraging others to do so by spreading information about Zero:2016 goals and progress through conversations, social media, and presentations with friends, family, colleagues, and policy makers.
I understand that homelessness affects every community in Contra Costa County, and that as community members, we all have a role in finding permanent housing solutions for residents in need.
By supporting the Zero: 2016 campaign, I also endorse a Housing First model for Contra Costa County. Using this approach provides people experiencing homelessness with housing as quickly as possible with few barriers, and then providing services as needed.
By focusing on housing opportunities and helping to build strategic partnerships, I believe that we can quickly provide homes to all of the homeless veterans and chronically homeless people in our county, and provide the services they need to remain housed.
I agree to help build and promote a system that meets the housing need in Contra Costa County, and specifically within my own city and community.
