City of Aberdeen opens community survey on homelessness response

The City of Aberdeen has opened a Homelessness Response Community Survey for Aberdeen residents and they are asking for community input.

Mayor Schave appointed a Homelessness Response Committee, tasked with developing and implementing a plan to enhance the community’s current response to the immediate homelessness crisis as well as long-term prevention strategies.

This survey is part of the ongoing effort to get input from the community, and follows a survey made available in February to Aberdeen businesses and workers to discuss homelessness and impacts on the business community.

This survey is open to community members as a way to gather information from those who are impacted by homelessness or interested in being part of a solution process.

According to the city, the information received from the residents and businesses will be used to measure progress made and influence future actions.
