For National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week, several community organizations and partners initiated a weeklong effort to identify people in Denton who are experiencing chronic homelessness and are most vulnerable for dying on the streets.
Denton Registry Week created a registry of people living on the streets and in shelters in Denton. Over the next 100 days, 5 most vulnerable individuals will be identified and selected for the program. Once selected, these individuals will be placed into an apartment with rent paid for 12 months. They will be enrolled in case management and will recieve other services for the next year to create a sustainable plan for their future housing and medical needs.
The data and findings from the survey was presented to the community on Friday, November 21, 2014. View the presentation below.
