Zero: 2016

Zero: 2016 is a movement of communities working to end veteran and chronic homelessness by the end of 2016. Coordinated by Community Solutions, the national effort supports participants in optimizing local resources, tracking progress against monthly housing goals, and accelerating the spread of proven strategies.

100 K Homes

Adapted from previous HHH and 100K Homes websites: 100,000 Homes Campaign (100K Homes) is a national movement of communities working together to find permanent homes for 100,000 of the most vulnerable homeless households by July 2014. The campaign was endorsed by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) and the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH).

Southern Nevada joined the campaign in May 2010 as one of 186 communities across the country that participated in 100K Homes. In July 2014, the campaign successfully concluded after having housed 105,580 people nationwide. Southern Nevada housed 798 individuals and families, including 128 veterans.

25 Cities

The 25 Cities Effort is a key Federal strategy through which 25 communities are receiving technical assistance and are mobilizing local planning efforts and partnerships to create effective systems for aligning housing and services interventions through coordinated systems to end homelessness. Led by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH), the aim of this Effort is to assist 25 communities in accelerating and aligning their existing efforts toward the creation of coordinated assessment and entry systems, laying the foundation for ending all homelessness, including homelessness among Veterans, in these communities.

With support from technical assistance providers, leaders and teams from each community optimize access to existing housing opportunities, in turn accelerating the number of permanent housing placements each month for Veterans experiencing homelessness and individuals experiencing chronic homelessness.
