Communities are working tirelessly to reach functional zero in chronic and veteran homelessness. What can philanthropy do to help take the last critical steps to reaching zero?
In December, we asked Beth Sandor from Community Solutions what we need to do differently to create large scale change in homelessness. She outlined the tools and systems-change work that the Built for Zero initiative is utilizing in communities across the county to end chronic and veteran homelessness. In this webinar, we will hear directly from two of the communities who have reached functional zero. Julia Orlando from Bergen County, NJ, will discuss how her community ended chronic homelessness and Mary Simons will speak to ending veteran homelessness in her community of Gulfport, MS.
We will hear specifically how rigorous data and committed funding partners are essential to reaching and maintaining functional zero. We will dig deep into the lessons they learned that may be helpful to other communities looking to take that last step.
