This special briefing will introduce 100,000 Homes, a national campaign that has shown significant results in New York and Los Angeles and has attracted national recognition. We will discuss how this strategy, in coordination with Santa Barbara County Continuum of Care’s Point-in-Time count, will be applied to Santa Barbara County in 2011. Adopting this approach, Common Ground Santa Barbara is being forged as a collaboration of civic interests, stakeholders, and community leaders.
