Housing Retention

The housing retention rate will help us determine whether our efforts work long-term. The goal of the How’s Nashville partners is to collaborate on permanent solutions to homelessness.

We want to monitor whether people are still in housing one year after moving from the streets or shelter into their apartments. The Metropolitan Homelessness Commission on behalf of the How’s Nashville campaign has been collecting data on housing placements. Starting in June 2014, the Homelessness Commission went back to see how many people were still in permanent housing one year after they initially moved into their apartment.
