100,000 Homes Campaign

Make plans now! From August 20 - 21, the 100,000 Homes Campaign will conduct a Registry Week Boot Camp in Kansas City, Missouri. We are asking communities with Registry Weeks planned for 2012 to send representatives to learn how to create a by-name registry of homeless people in your community, line up the supply of housing and services needed to house them, and build the strong local team that will make housing placements. 

We are especially excited to announce that this Boot Camp will focus on integrating your Registry Week with the annual Point-in-Time count! It costs a lot of money and effort to go out and count people. Why not get their names and pictures and gain a better understanding of their situation while you're out there? Several communities have done this with great success - we will cover exactly how and offer an abundance of tools for you to take home. 


When: August 20 - 21, 2012
Where: The Mid America Regional Council Offices
                    600 Broadway, Suite 200
                    Kansas City, MO 64105
Who: Key leaders from your community who will play a lead role in organizing your Campaign effort and Registry Week.
Cost: Registration is free to all enrolled communities. The cost for un-enrolled communities is $1,000 per team. 
Hotels: Nearby hotels include the Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown (816-474-6664) and the Kansas City Marriott Downtown (816-421-6800).
