Partners Launch Registry Week to Survey Homeless in Indianapolis in Effort to Identify Those in Need of Housing Event Kicks Off City’s Participation in 100,000 Homes Campaign, a National Effort to House 100,000 Homeless by July 2014
INDIANAPOLIS – The City of Indianapolis, Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP), Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) will be joined by community partners in kicking off the Indianapolis Registry Week Survey. The survey will create a by-name, photographic registry of local homeless and prioritize the most vulnerable for housing. Volunteers will traverse across the Indianapolis community to find, identify and survey the area’s homeless.
A local coalition spearheaded by CHIP and CSH has teamed up with the nationally renowned organization Community Solutions and its 100,000 Homes Campaign (www.100Khomes.org). The program has become a national model for reducing and eliminating homelessness in major urban metropolitan areas including New York City’s Times Square.
