Housing Placement updates for 2016 by 2016

The 2016 by 2016 campaign aims to end Veterans and chronic homelessness in Nashville within the next 18 months.

How’s Nashville partners set clear goals and meet every two weeks to evaluate the progress towards these goals. As part of that process, we publish monthly housing placement reports.

To end  Veterans and chronic homelessness, How’s Nashville partners estimated that 595 Veterans need to obtain housing by December 2015 and 1,421 people experiencing chronic homelessness by the end of 2016.

How’s Nashville currently is asking our community to support our work to end Veterans and chronic homelessness.
