2016 by 2016 Campaign: Housing Placements

How’s Nashville partners launched the 2016 by 2016 campaign in January 2015 with the goal of assisting 1,421 people experiencing chronic homelessness and 595 Veterans (totaling 2016 people) by the end of 2016.

As of October 2016, our community helped 1,194 people who were chronically homeless and 456 Veterans access permanent housing opportunities.

To place this outcome into context, our community’s housing placement rate prior to the How’s Nashville movement was on average 19 people experiencing chronic homelessness per month. Meanwhile, our average monthly housing placement rate has increased to 55 people experiencing chronic homelessness per month. We have come a long way, but have still a lot of work to do.

Thank you to all our community partner! You find them listed on our Partner page. We encourage you to volunteer with them.

If you want to get engaged in our efforts to end homelessness for people experiencing chronic homelessness, families with children, Veterans, youth, and individuals who are literally homeless and very vulnerable, please consider a donation to cover some of their move-in costs.
