Until Functional Zero

Functional Zero

Community Solutions, the national nonprofit spearheading the Built for Zero initiative, defines functional zero as:

At any point in time, the number of people experiencing homelessness in the community will be no greater than that community’s average monthly housing placement rate for those individuals.

So, how do we reach functional zero for our veterans by January 2020?
