Ending homelessness is about breaking down barriers. Nothing should stand in the way of providing our neighbors experiencing homelessness with the dignity and necessity of a home. Through Zero: 2016, we’re committed to working with communities to break down any barriers that may stand in the way of meeting our goal and ending veteran and chronic homelessness in the next two years.

Community Solutions is once again teaming up with DoSomething.org, one of the largest organizations for young people working for social change, to help youth get involved in ending homelessness. Today, we’re launching round two of the highly successful Welcome Home banner campaign, which enlists Dosomething.org members to create colorful, handmade “welcome home” banners to be hung in the apartments of homeless people moving into permanent housing.

This week, during the 2015 federal Point-in-Time (PIT) Count, volunteers from each of the country’s 414 Continuums of Care (CoCs) will hit area streets and shelters to assess the number of residents experiencing homelessness within the community. This annual count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless people is a federal requirement, but each community plans, coordinates, and carries it out locally during the last 10 days in January.
