Yesterday, in a room full of supporters, partners, and friends, Cisco and Destination: Home announced our new strategic partnership, establishing a Supportive Housing and Innovation Fund. Cisco is seeding our new partnership with a $50 million investment to Destination: Home over the next 5 years. The fund will help build supportive housing, acquire land, pioneer technology solutions, study and pilot promising supportive service interventions, and explore innovations to increase efficiency and effectiveness for our most vulnerable and homeless residents.
“Though homelessness seems intractable, I believe that it is a solvable issue. I also feel very strongly that we have an opportunity – and a responsibility – to do something about it.” -Chuck Robbins, CEO, Cisco
Individuals who have experienced homelessness share about their experience and what it means to be housed. The Supportive Housing and Innovation Fund will help bring more individuals home.
