Denver CBS4: Metro Area Leaders Commit To Regional Coordination To Address Homelessness

May 18, 2021

“We have to face the uncomfortable truth about the challenges of homelessness in our society,” said Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock. “Coming together collaboratively as a region gives us the opportunity to be more efficient with the resources we have, whether it is the services to connect people to have their needs addressed, or to housing.” 

Metro Denver Homeless Initiative co-hosted the event with the nonprofit Community Solutions, which leads the national Built for Zero initiative. More than 80 cities and counties have joined the movement, using data to measurably reduce homelessness in their communities.
