This target provides information on HSD's housing programs' contributions towards ending homelessness. The objective counts households that were housed as a result of the four housing support programs: CalWORKS Housing and Move in Program (CHAMP), Bringing Families Home (BFH), Housing Disability Advocacy Program (HDAP) and Home Safe. HSD also provides other supports that may lead to housing, however these programs are solely dedicated for that purpose.
