On October 23rd, 2018, the West Texas Homeless Network launched the Mayors Challenge to effectively ending veteran homelessness in Abilene. This 100-Day Challenge comes from the Rapid Results Institute, a nonprofit organization that has provided a rapid-cycle implementation process to solve critical social challenges around the globe. We in Abilene are focusing on developing a collaborative system to meet the needs of veterans experiencing homelessness. Housing our most vulnerable veteran neighbors is a crucial first step to effectively ending all homelessness in the Big Country. Our goal throughout this challenge was to make homelessness among veterans in Abilene something that is rare, brief, and nonrecurring.
