Homeless Action Plan

An updated City of Spokane Valley DRAFT Homeless Action Plan is being considered by the City Council for adoption by the end of 2023. The plan considers public input collected in March 2023, and aims to set forth a strategy to prevent and/or reduce homelessness significantly. 

While homelessness is a regional problem that requires collaboration with stakeholders beyond the city limits, it's essential that Spokane Valley implement a systematic, long-term response that ensures homelessness does not occur in the first place whenever possible or, if it cannot be prevented, is a rare, brief and one-time experience. Homelessness is not unique to the city; however, Spokane Valley does have a distinct character that requires a data-driven and outcomes-based plan that reflects the city's values and goals.
