Support Chicago's 100K Homes Fund
The goal of Chicago Registry Week is to create a by-name registry of people living on our streets and shelters, so we can prioritize those who have been out there the longest and who are the most vulnerable. What we learn together during this week will help us reduce chronic homelessness in Chicago. Additionally, we hope to house 150 singles and 20 families identified during the registry by December 31, 2010.
Increasing the number of chronically homeless individuals in permanent housing is a national goal that we report to HUD annually. We have done well at meeting our goals, mainly because we have received resources targeted to this population. Yet in non-targeted units, there still may be challenges in connecting individuals and families who are eligible for your programs and who are in most need for supportive housing. We hope that a common assessment and database will improve this connection.
We are asking for your support and commitment to help Chicago meet its initial housing goal, and demonstrate the effectiveness of a coordinated path to housing.
Whether you are a homeless service provider or an individual, we need your help!
In partnership with New York's Common Ground, the Corporation for Supportive Housing, the Chicago Department of Family and Support Services and the Chicago Alliance to End Homelessness are planning a week long effort to help homeless individuals obtain and sustain housing as part of Common Ground's 100,000 Homes Campaign
