Over the last several years, residents in Southwest Florida have witnessed remarkable change. There has been a new collaborative movement among human service providers, non-profits, government, faith-based, and community activists who have come together to support new ideas for solving the condition of homelessness.

A new era in innovative programs and services have been developed to assist those recovering from economic recession, targeting families and individuals who are looking for a way out of homelessness. Southwest Florida is a community committed to permanent change, leading homeless and extremely low-income households to sustainability.

At the forefront of these collaborations is the Gulf Coast Partnership (GCP), our community’s Continuum of Care Lead Agency. The Gulf Coast Partnership’s goal is to end homelessness through innovation and collaboration. Through capacity building, partnership, and technology, the GCP brings service programs together, while focusing limited community resources on the most vulnerable populations living in the community.
