West Mountain Regional Health Alliance is the Community and Data Lead for Built for Zero, a national initiative that works to functionally end homelessness. Communities achieve this through collecting real-time data on individuals experiencing homelessness and connecting them with needed services. At the same time, communities are creating coalitions of many organizations to bolster current resources and develop new ones to ensure a strong range of programs and services to solve homelessness and prevent future homelessness. The program has been successful in a variety of settings, and WMRHA is excited to partner with several local organizations to bring BFZ to this region and seeing it through until every chronically homeless individual is housed.
