Mission Statement: The Frederick Housing Solutions Task Force is dedicated to eradicating homelessness and ensuring secure and affordable housing for all residents of Frederick, Maryland.  

Vision Statement: Our vision is to create a compassionate, inclusive, and thriving community where every individual has a place to call home. 

Our Commitments: 

  1. Homelessness Prevention: We are committed to implementing proactive measures to prevent homelessness by addressing its root causes, including unemployment, mental health challenges, and economic disparities. 
  2. Accessible Housing: We strive to make safe, stable, and affordable housing accessible to all, regardless of income, background, or circumstance. We will work to expand housing options and reduce barriers to entry. 
  3. Collaboration: We believe that addressing homelessness and housing requires a unified effort. We will collaborate with local government agencies, nonprofits, businesses, and community members to maximize our impact. 
  4. Inclusivity: Our task force values diversity and inclusivity. We will ensure that our solutions are culturally sensitive and that the voices of marginalized and vulnerable populations are heard and respected. 
  5. Advocacy: We will advocate for policy changes at the local, state, and federal levels that support our mission. We will engage with policymakers to create lasting solutions for homelessness and housing insecurity. 
  6. Education and Outreach: We will raise awareness about homelessness and housing issues in our community through educational programs and outreach efforts. Knowledge is key to understanding and solving these complex challenges. 
  7. Data-Driven Solutions: We will use data and research to inform our strategies, measure our progress, and adapt our approach as needed. Evidence-based decision-making is at the core of our work. 
  8. Empowerment: We aim to empower individuals experiencing homelessness or housing instability to regain their independence and self-sufficiency by providing access to supportive services and resources. 
  9. Long-term Solutions: While we address immediate needs, our focus is on long-term, sustainable solutions that will lead to a future where homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring in Frederick, Maryland. 

By upholding these commitments, the Frederick Housing Solutions Task Force seeks to transform the lives of our fellow residents and create a city where everyone has a place to call home, a community that thrives, and a future filled with hope and opportunity for all.
