Kansas City’s Homeless Coordinator: “The Goal Has To Be To End It”


In the battle to end homelessness, Kansas City is working to help those in need get shelter when Old Man Winter rears his ugly head.

Josh Henges is the Homeless Prevention Coordinator for Kansas City. He tells Missourinet that this isn’t a new plan, but it takes time to get right.

It makes up step five of Kansas City’s Zero KC plan to end homelessness – a repeatable extreme weather plan. Other priority projects include engaging with neighborhoods and business communities. It also increases cross-system collaboration.
