About the Event
Jennifer Loving has spent her career spearheading efforts to better serve the needs of homeless individuals and families in Silicon Valley. Working in a variety of shelter, street, and housing programs, Jennifer has developed and collaborated on numerous innovative models including the County’s first Housing First program for homeless families and the Housing 1000 Campaign, which brought more than 1,000 chronically homeless men and women home. A leader in systems change, Jennifer oversaw the production of Home Not Found, the most comprehensive cost of homelessness study completed in the United States, and she facilitated the release of The Silicon Valley Triage Tool, an open source predictive forecasting tool for Supportive Housing.
In 2014, Destination: Home developed the Community Plan to End Homelessness, which provides the roadmap for how Santa Clara County will end homelessness. In August 2020, Destination: Home released an updated Community Plan for 2020-2025, which contains many useful ideas for San Francisco.
