MIAMI - The Miami-Dade Homeless Trust joined a national campaign that seeks to end chronic homelessness.
The county announced it had enrolled in the 100,000 Homes campaign Thursday.
"This is a game changer for Miami-Dade County," said Ron Book, chairman of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust. "As part of the Homeless Trust's 10-Point Strategies to End Chronic Homelessness, we are joining 100,000 Homes because their track-record is outstanding and we believe their evidence-based approach will be exactly what we need to meet HUD's goal of ending chronic homelessness by 2015. HUD's priority is our priority."
100,000 Homes is a national homeless program aimed at ending chronic homelessness. More than 72,000 chronically homeless have been served, with the goal of helping 100,000 by July 2014.
