A safe place to call home is the foundation for thriving individuals, families, and communities. But last year, roughly 5,000 individuals in Polk County experienced homelessness — depriving them of the safety, security, and foundation they need to succeed.
At Homeward, we believe the Polk County community has a collective responsibility to support residents experiencing homelessness by providing a variety of housing options and services. Together, we can ensure our neighbors have access to the resources they need not just to survive — but to thrive — in stable, permanent housing.
Formerly known as the Polk County Continuum of Care, Homeward leads a community-wide homelessness planning effort to ensure that one day, everyone in Polk County will have a safe place to call home.
