WE STRENGTHEN THE HOUSING SECURITY SYSTEMS THAT SERVE OUR RESIDENTS
Ensuring housing security services for 100% of county residents. The 100% Community housing action team identifies challenges, researches solutions and supports organizations in improving housing security services. The long-term goal is creating a countywide system of housing security programs with collaboration and coordination with all city government, county government and non-governmental organizations within the county’s borders.
The 100% Community housing action team collects and analyzes data then identifies gaps in housing security program services. The 100% Community survey data, including informational interviews with residents of all communities within the county’s borders, reveal which populations and communities lack easy access to housing security program services. The survey also reveals why housing security services may be difficult to access. Difficulties may include a lack of awareness of programs, lack of transport to housing security programs, costs related to housing, lack of easy-to-access housing security services.
The 100% Community housing action team focuses on identifying which organizations currently need capacity-building in order to meet the need. The team identifies partnerships to improve services. This can be done through a process of continuous quality improvement (the data-driven “assess-plan-act-evaluate” process).
The 100% Community housing action team focuses on identifying which private sector businesses can help address housing insecurity throughout the county. The team works to create partnerships between businesses and housing security systems and programs.
The 100% Community housing action team focuses on identifying how to use technology, including websites and apps, to increase awareness of housing insecurity, increase resources to provide services, and increase alignment of housing security services across all cities and communities within the county’s borders. The team also works to address the digital divide to increase access for all county residents to mobile devices and the Internet through community access points.
The 100% Community housing action team focuses on reaching all county residents in order to mobilize community teams to address housing insecurity. The team works to engage all county residents who have free time (retirees, college students, etc.) to support housing security efforts. The team also works to create opportunities for all county residents to share their ideas for problem solving.
The 100% housing action team focuses on strengthening the capacity of all schools to increase their capacity to address student housing insecurity and homelessness issues. The team focuses on how to fund schools to adopt the “community school” model with staff who can focus on ensuring housing security options for all students and their families.
The 100% Community housing action team focuses on identifying which individuals and programs working with local higher education can support housing security efforts. This includes identifying support for surveying, data analysis, researching solutions, and creating campus-based housing security options, along with engaging students and staff in housing security efforts.
The 100% Community housing action team focuses on identifying the capacity of city and county government to strengthen their current housing security efforts and expand them to meet the need. This includes a special focus on meeting the needs of the county’s most vulnerable residents. Teams will recommend to local government the most up-to-date methods and software to accurately track housing security program effectiveness.
The 100% Community housing action team focuses on identifying which programs the federal and state government offer to support countywide housing security. This process includes networking, advocating and grant writing.
The 100% Community housing action team focuses on the long-term goal of creating a county-city “Department of Housing Options” to focus on addressing housing challenges. This includes surveying residents on their access to housing options, their need for the programs and why they might be difficult to access. This proposed department could also support ongoing research in housing security programs and support local efforts to ensure timely and safe housing across the county.
HOUSING@100% GUIDES THE WORK IN YOUR COUNTY

Housing@100% illustrates how county systems of housing can be increased to ensure that no child, student or family members experience homelessness or home insecurity. Housing@100% details how county leaders can collaborate to ensure that a countywide system of accessible housing is created from existing and new public and private programs to meet the needs of all our children, students and families.
