Webinar: What We Need to Do Differently to Create Large Scale Change in Homelessness


Community Solutions knows that in order to create large scale change, we need to think differently. Join this webinar to hear what they learned from the 100,000 Homes and Zero:2016 Campaigns and, specifically, what didn't work.

So far, seven communities have reached functional zero in veteran homelessness and three in chronic homelessness. What does it take for communities to take that last big step to reach functional zero? Beth Sandor is leading the Built for Zero movement and will share what she's seen in communities that have reached functional zero and those struggling to take the last step. She will share her vision of treating homelessness as a complex, solvable problem, and how moving from static to dynamic data is key to identifying and addressing challenges as they arise.

Along the way, hear how philanthropy can be engaged in this framework and help communities end homelessness for all populations.

This is the first in a two-part series. In part two, we will hear directly from two communities that have reached zero – one in chronic and the other in veteran homelessness.

We joined Funders Together because we believe in the power of philanthropy to play a major role in ending homelessness, and we know we have much to learn from funders across the country.

-Christine Marge, Director of Housing and Financial Stability at United Way of Greater Los Angeles

I am thankful for the local partnerships here in the Pacific Northwest that we’ve been able to create and nurture thanks to the work of Funders Together. Having so many of the right players at the table makes our conversations – and all of our efforts – all the richer and more effective.

-David Wertheimer, Deputy Director at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Very often a lack of jobs and money is not the cause of poverty, but the symptom. The cause may lie deeper in our failure to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities, in a lack of education and training, in a lack of medical care and housing, in a lack of decent communities in which to live and bring up their children.

-President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1964 State of the Union Address

Funders Together has given me a platform to engage the other funders in my community. Our local funding community has improved greatly to support housing first models and align of resources towards ending homelessness.

-Leslie Strnisha, Vice President at Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland

Our family foundation convenes local funders and key community stakeholders around strategies to end homelessness in Houston. Funders Together members have been invaluable mentors to us in this effort, traveling to our community to share their expertise and examples of best practices from around the nation.
