In November 2018, Miami-Dade County (FL), Prince George’s County (MD), Sacramento (CA), Southern Nevada/Las Vegas (NV), and Suburban Cook County (IL) launched their own 100-Day Challenges. The system in each community was reinvigorated by the unreasonably ambitious goals the teams set, and the 100-Day countdown is underway! IN THE NEXT 100 DAYS… 

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY (FL)

GOAL: By Day 100, every 14-24 year old who enters through Coordinated Entry will be off the street within 48 hours of entry and 67% will exit to safe, stable housing. 75% of 14-24 year olds entering through CE are connected to training, education, or employment and the number of youth identified as needing behavorial health that are connected to care increases.

 

PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY (MD)

GOAL: In 100 Days, 50 young adults (18-24) who are homeless will be housed, of which 75% will be employed and/or in educational or training programs. During the 100 days, 100% of students at three 2 and 4 year institutions who identify as homeless will be housed, and those who identify as at-risk of homelessness will remain housed.

 

SACRAMENTO (CA)

GOAL: In 100 Days, we will house 200 youth and young adults ages 16-24 in safe and stable housing with connections to supports – of which 20% are pregnant and or parenting, and 65% are experiencing significant mental health symptons as a barrier to housing.

 

SOUTHERN NEVADA/LAS VEGAS (NV)

GOAL: In 100 Days, we will prevent 50 system-involved youth (foster care, JJ) from entering homelessness and house 100 youth experiencing homelessness under age 25 with innovative housing solutions.

 

SUBURBAN COOK COUNTY (IL)

GOAL: In 100 Days, we will improve identification of unaccompanied youth under age 25 in 3 regions (centered around high school districts), and we will assess 100% of youth in our system – resulting in connecting 75 youth experiencing homelessness to safe and stable housing.

 

Stay tuned for their progress and results…
