A national network of funders supporting strategic, innovative, and effective solutions to homelessness

Youth Homelessness 100-Day Challenge Webinar

In September, three communities launched 100 Day Challenges with ambitious goals all focused around ending homelessness for youth. These communities – Austin, Cleveland, and Los Angeles – have been working incredibly hard and in January will be coming together to celebrate their success and share learnings.  

On January 10th, after the 100-Day Challenge Review, Funders Together will be hosting a webinar to share learnings, challenges, and upcoming opportunities with our members. During this webinar, members will hear from the team leads of each community as well as the Rapid Results team that helped design and implement the challenges. 

If your community is interested in the 100-Day Challenge model or simply wants to hear about how these communities were able to overcome obstacles to house youth, we hope you will join us. We will also be highlighting upcoming opportunities for your community to join national efforts to end homelessness for youth and young adults!

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.
