Indianapolis has a goal to end homelessness by 2023 -- with the aim that no one in the city has to spend more than 30 days without a permanent, affordable, safe place to live.

WFYI City Policy Reporter Jill Sheridan has been covering the efforts of city leaders, local nonprofits and individuals to reach that goal. This series explores the issue in Indianapolis, and the work being done to help people experiencing homelessness get the services they need to safely, and permanently get back on their feet.
