Thanks to all of the Registry Week volunteers (especially the data entry folks!) and 469 survey respondents who took time out of their lives to participate. What a week! As a volunteer, it was tough waking up so early each morning…but three days of sleep deprivation pales in comparison to the instability and ultimate disruption that is the hallmark of long-term homelessness.
Fortunately, our community is pumped, and there is hope and a clearer path to ending chronic homelessness in Nashville! We are working towards creating a more intentional housing placement process that instills hope, joy, choice, and respect for both the housed and unhoused. This is going to be quite a summer!
