Communicating the extension of Zero

Communicating the extension of Zero: 2016 and its new name, Built for Zero

Our community has made too much progress to turn back now. We are excited to continue working to accelerate our progress toward ending veteran and chronic homelessness.

Starting in November 2016, the national Zero: 2016 movement will become “Built for Zero,” indicating the kind of community we want to be and the sustainable system we are building together. We will continue to participate in this movement.

Participating in Zero:2016, our community has made too much progress to turn back now.  Some of the most important results as of 9/30/2016:

  • We’ve found homes for 55 households experiencing chronic homelessness–approximately 90 individuals
  • Over 230 previously homeless veterans are now housed
  • We’ve improved coordination across our community-wide housing system
  • By participating in this national movement of communities working toward the same goal, we have developed a robust network to partner with and learn from

We are excited to continue working to accelerate our progress toward ending veteran and chronic homelessness.
