The Evansville-Vanderburgh Commission on Homelessness was formed in 2005, to oversee and facilitate the implementation of Destination: Home – The Plan to End Homelessness and ensure that its strategies continue moving forward. This Commission was established by ordinances passed by both the Evansville City Council (February 2005) and the Vanderburgh County Commissioners (December 2004).

The Commission’s purpose is to make non-binding recommendations to city and county government, non-profit organizations, and other interested agencies concerning the ten-year plan to end homelessness. It also makes similar recommendations on other issues of importance concerning homelessness in our community and oversees progress on the implementation of Destination: Home – The Plan to End Homelessness.
