COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

There could soon be more housing for families and individuals facing homelessness in Columbus.

Christie Bevis with Home for Good, the alliance to end homelessness, presented an update on the ten-year plan to end homelessness in city council Tuesday.

Bevis said a proposal is in the works to partner with the Columbus Housing Authority for about 150 housing units for those facing homelessness.

"What research really is showing, housing first creates stability that people need and having a secure environment then they can work on what other issues they might have," Bevis said.

Bevis said those homes could be done in a variety of ways. Some homes could stand alone while others may be already integrated into a current housing authority community.

She said they hope to have everything worked out in the next five to seven years.
