Bright & Early: Thinking Big Edition

Good morning, Nashville. The Metro Homelessness Commission thinks they have a solution for chronic homelessness in Nashville: Housing. It might sound simple, but they have created a group called The Key Alliance that aims to raise close to $72 million to provide some additional housing and support services for Nashville’s homeless. The alliance will eventually include government, business, and non-profit organizations interested in fighting the problem, and the entire plan will span about 10 years. Though it sounds a little ambitious, a similar plan was enacted in Denver and reduced chronic homelessness by 36% and overall homelessness by 11%.
