100K Homes Campaign
UWGT’s Regional Initiative Task Force is proud to announce our participation in the 100K Homes Campaign, a national three-year program aimed at housing 100,000 vulnerable, homeless individuals and families by 2013. As part of the 100,000 Homes initiative, Triangle-wide partners in Wake and Orange counties coordinated the Triangle Registry Week, January 21st - 27th, when more than 150 volunteers took to the streets and homeless shelters in the Triangle to survey and identify our most vulnerable homeless individuals and families. The information collected during Registry Week will be used to create a by-name registry that will serve to prioritize those homeless individuals who have been living on the streets the longest and quickly move them into permanent housing.
The 100,000 Homes Campaign, launched by Common Ground, brings together change agents from across the country to find homes for 100,000 of the most vulnerable and long-term homeless individuals and families by 2013. It is designed to fundamentally alter our response to chronic homelessness by giving communities concrete tools and connecting the change agents with one another so no one has to innovate alone. To date, approximately 34 US cities including New York, Detroit, and Fort Worth have pledged to support the campaign. More than 11,225 individuals have been permanently housed since late 2009.
