January Advisors: Using Data to Rethink Homelessness

The Built for Zero approach reframes how we think about housing and homelessness.
  |  February 11, 2020

It takes a lot of guts to take a good thing, and try to make it better. Back in 2017, El Paso was already on the right track to ending homelessness. They had a nearly complete list of everyone experiencing homelessness in the community. They had partners in the community who reported information, but it wasn’t everyone. With a new year came a new leader, and they decided to tackle the issue of missing data right away.

The solution? Implement a deceptively straightforward, but revolutionary approach through Built for Zero. With the help of this organization and network, the advocates in El Paso started to fill in the missing pieces.
