Oklahoma city implemented its 100,000 Homes Campaign in January 2013. As of Feb. 26, 200 people have a place to stay.
While One Vision One Voice is not a part of the 100,000 Homes Campaign, that is the model Norman agencies want to follow in seeking solutions to chronic homelessness.
“We truly believe this is a direction that we want to go,” Krieg said.
Most people are homeless only once and only for a short period of time. Helping those in most dire need — the sick, the elderly and the chronic homeless — creates a priority of assistance that saves lives and tax dollars.
Families with children also will be a priority under the rapid rehousing program.
