How’s Nashville is a collaborative, community-wide effort that is part of the 100,000 Homes Campaign, a national movement that has housed more than 100,000 vulnerable and chronically homeless individuals and families across the nation in between 2010 and June of 2014.
The Metropolitan Homelessness Commission provides planning and coordination and serves as the campaign’s backbone organization.
A Steering Committee consisting of partners from the nonprofit, private, and government sectors oversees the activities and programs of the campaign.
Workgroups are formed around different focus areas including Housing, Data & Cost Savings, and Outreach & Support Services.
