As part of the Zero 2016 campaign, we are tracking our monthly progress toward housing homeless veterans and chronically homeless individuals. The progress is tracked against goals that we set that we need to meet to be on track to end veteran homelessness by the end of 2015 and chronic homelessness by the end of 2016. (Actually, we are shooting for functional zero by those dates.) Thanks to Community Solutions for the great dashboards that help us track our progress!
Fourteen veterans were housed in June–exceeding our monthly goal of 9. Great job, everyone! We are behind on our annual goal because of fewer housing placements in earlier months, but we’re improving and making up for the earlier low numbers.
The CoC has been consistently exceeding our monthly goal for chronically homeless individuals, and did so again in June, with six more people housed. Projections show that we will reach our goal for functional zero for chronically homeless early–in May 2016.
