After one year of focusing on Nashville’s chronic homeless population by assisting people who have experienced long-term homelessness move from the streets to permanent housing, our community can boast an annual housing retention rate of 80%.
The numbers break down the following way:
89 of a total of 111 people who moved into permanent housing in June and July 2013 are still in housing (13 of the 89 people are children).
What happened to the remaining people? 6 are unhoused, 3 died, 1 moved away, and 12 could not be reached at the time of the attempted contact (therefore, we do not know whether they are still in housing, whether they moved, or if they have lost their housing).
