100-Day Challenges to Impact Youth Homelessness

Communities in King, Pierce, and Spokane counties are establishing ambitious, community-identified goals to accelerate progress toward preventing and ending youth and young adult homelessness in their communities over the course of 100 days.

These 100-Day Challenges will focus on supporting young people experiencing homelessness by providing essential resources to securing stable housing.

Teams from the three communities came together in Seattle on April 18 – 19 to officially launch their Challenges. Throughout the following 100 days, they will receive coaching and support from the Rapid Results Institute, with financial support coming from the Schultz Family Foundation and the Raikes Foundation.

A Way Home Washington is thrilled to convene this effort and support the 100-Day Challenges teams to tell the stories of their efforts and progress toward achieving their goals.
