Housing 1000

$1,966,290
A partner in the national 100,000 Homes campaign, Housing 1000 was a three-year campaign to house 1,000 of our community’s most vulnerable chronically homeless men, women and families. Destination: Home served as the backbone organization for this collective impact model, bringing together homelessness service providers, public funders and strategic partners around a set of common metrics and outcomes. When the campaign ended in 2014, our community had housed 850 homeless men, women, and their families, with approximately 83 percent remaining stably housed.
