100,000 homes: the US campaign to help ease homelessness

 The Contributor - USA 17 March 2019

The crew of American television show, 60 Minutes, followed Nashville’s housing teams last summer as they identified people at high risk of dying on the streets. After being located in caves, under bridges and in homeless encampments, those at risk were immediately placed in homes – with no waiting times or need to meet employment, medical or sobriety criteria. The story later aired by 60 Minutes featured How’s Nashville, the local end of a cutting edge national campaign that aims to place 100,000 chronically homeless people into permanent housing by June 2014. Chelsea Apple of The Contributor reports on progress so far, with 85,000 people housed through the initiative. (919 Words) - By Chelsea Apple
