Notes: In FY18, the Special Needs Housing Division was reorganized. As a result, services for homeless single adults and homeless families were separated into distinct programs, homeless diversion and homeless prevention services were separated into distinct programs, and the Healthcare for the Homeless Program was transferred from the Public Health Services Division to the Special Needs Housing Division. The multi-program adjustments above reflect this reorganization.
