The 10 Year Plan to End Homeless in Collier County called Vision 20/20 is: A Clear View of Housing for All Members of Collier County is a community-level action plan for addressing the housing needs of adults, families, youth, and children who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The development of this plan has been a collaborative effort involving individuals and families who have or are currently experiencing homelessness or are at risk of becoming homeless, unaccompanied youth identified as homeless, service providers, advocates, policy makers, and other community leaders.
