100,000 Homes Campaign is a grassroots effort to find and place the most vulnerable, long-term homeless individuals into 100,000 households across the country by July 2014. Under the leadership of Mayor Annise Parker, the City of Houston in partnership with the Houston Housing Authority, SEARCH Homeless Services, Corporation for Supportive Housing, Coalition for the Homeless and other integral community partners are planning a weeklong effort to identify and help persons who are homeless obtain and sustain permanent housing.
