KYKN News: Built for Zero is Coming to the Marion-Polk County Region

November 19, 2019

Kaiser Permanente has joined forces with the Mid-Willamette Valley Homeless Alliance to implement Built for Zero in the Marion-Polk county region.

Built for Zero is a national initiative of more than 70 cities and counties committed to ending chronic and veteran homelessness by using real-time data to improve performance, adopt proven best practices, and deploy existing resources more efficiently. Eleven participating communities have ended chronic or veteran homelessness, and more than 71,000 veterans and 42,000 chronically homeless Americans have been housed since January 2015 by communities in Built for Zero.
