Reaching Zero for Veterans
Coordinated by New York-based nonprofit Community Solutions, Built for Zero is a national change effort working to help committed communities across the United States reach functional zero for veteran and chronic homelessness. Now we are welcoming Built for Zero to Duval, Clay, and Nassau counties in an effort to effectively end veteran homelessness by April 2020.
More than 85 communities nationwide are participating in the Built for Zero initiative, but Jacksonville is just one of six cities included in Built for Zero’s large city cohort.
Eleven small and medium sized cities have achieved Functional Zero for veteran or chronic homelessness through Built for Zero’s data-driven, command center approach. However, large cities, like Jacksonville, require an even more aggressive approach to overcome complex barriers that exist on a greater scale in large city systems.
