How South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

The South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless (SARAH) envisions a San Antonio/Bexar County where everyone has a safe place to call home. Recognizing that no one organization working alone can end homelessness, SARAH distributes over $12.5 million of federal funding to multi-sector organizations and hosts collaborative working groups with over 50 partners. SARAH oversees Homelink, our community's Coordinated Entry System, where people experiencing homelessness can receive an assessment and be placed on the waiting list for supportive housing. Every January, SARAH oversees the Point-in-Time Count (PIT Count), a national initiative to gather data on people experiencing homelessness to inform federal and local strategy, policy, and decision making.
