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

South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless (SARAH) works to make homelessness a rare, brief, and nonrecurring event. Recognizing that no one organization working alone can end homelessness, SARAH distributes $10.3 million of federal funding to multi-sector organizations and hosts collaborative working groups with over 50 partners. Every January, SARAH oversees the Point In Time Count (PIT Count), a national initiative to find out how many people are homeless, who is homeless, and why they are homeless. The 2019 PIT Count, led by over 400 volunteers, revealed a 6% reduction in overall homelessness and a 12% reduction in unsheltered homelessness. In 2016, veteran homelessness ended in San Antonio. Today, every veteran is identified and housed within 90 days.
