Starting in October 2012, the Community Alliance for the Homeless and BHI co-chaired the Memphis and Shelby County Registry Week to learn the names and faces of those living unsheltered and utilizing a research-based tool, to determine who was most likely to die without intervention. This effort is part of the 100,000 Homes campaign (100khomes.org)
Today, more than 500 assessments have been completed. A more clinical follow-up assessment was completed on 150 of these individuals and 50 people have now received permanent housing. Read more about the effort May Progress Update small
