100-Day Challenges to Impact Youth Homelessness
Starting on April 20, 2017, Spokane, Pierce, and King counties embarked on 100-day journeys to accelerate progress toward preventing and ending youth and young adult homelessness in their communities. Each region established ambitious goals for themselves to house youth and young adults.
The teams receive coaching and support from the Rapid Results Institute, with financial support from the Schultz Family Foundation and the Raikes Foundation. A Way Home Washington served as the convener and coordinator for these efforts.
The 100-Day Challenges concluded on July 29, 2017. Congrats to the teams in King, Pierce, and Spokane counties for their incredible work!
The 100-Day Challenge dashboards allowed each team to track its progress toward numeric goals and sub-goals throughout the 100-day journey.
“I am so impressed with the system leaders and providers in each community for having the courage to set audacious challenges for themselves, and commit to supporting the teams carrying out this important work,” said Jim Theofelis, Executive Director of A Way Home Washington.
The most valuable part of the 100-Day Challenge model is the opportunity it presented for each region to learn about its current system, and to experiment with new ideas. Help us congratulate the teams on Facebook and Twitter using the #WAChallengeAccepted hashtag!
