The purpose of the How’s Nashville campaign is to foster collaboration among stakeholders from the nonprofit, business, faith-based, private, and government sectors. Our goal is to improve our local system in regard to the housing placement rate and the retention of housing for individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.
Homelessness is a public health issue. It is lethal. Last year, 37 people were remembered at the annual Homeless Memorial. The local campaign team wants to reduce street deaths in our community by implementing permanent solutions to homelessness.
We believe in Housing First is a solution to chronic homelessness. That’s why we connect people who recently moved into their new home with the level of case management support to help them stay permanently housed.
