LifeMoves 5-Year Strategic Plan

Homelessness is a growing crisis in Silicon Valley.

We create pathways to stable housing by providing interim housing, customized supportive services, and access to resources for individuals experiencing homelessness.

Hello Friend,

We are proud to introduce our new approach to confronting the homelessness crisis. Through our new 5-year strategic plan, we have redefined our path forward, building on our innovative interim housing model and expert service delivery, to ensure that our unhoused neighbors have the housing and support they need to thrive. We are opening doors and creating pathways ahead for our unhoused neighbors and communities.

In many ways, our new 5-year strategic plan was inspired by your partnership, belief, and investments in our powerful outcomes. We are glad to share our sharpened and clarified mission and vision, as well as the pillars and priorities that will drive our efforts to scale our impact on the lives of our unhoused neighbors. This requires all of us doing our part and doing our part well. Working together, we can make a deep and lasting difference in Silicon Valley.
