New Local Homeless Data

How’s Nashville campaign partners continue to conduct Vulnerability index (VI) surveys. Since mid-May, more than 1,000 people who experienced homelessness in Nashville have been surveyed.

The VI questions aim to find out how vulnerable people are. The resulting list helps communities such as Nashville prioritize housing based on medical vulnerability replacing a first-come-first-serve approach.

Of the 1,028 individuals surveyed between May and December, 604 (59%) were found to have health conditions associated with high mortality risk and thus, were considered vulnerable.
