#100DayChallenge to #endyouthhomelessness

Sioux Falls has been selected as one of five rural areas to participate in a 100-day challenge to #endyouthhomelessness. 

The 100-Day Challenge is a project designed to stimulate intense collaboration, innovation, and execution, all in pursuit of a wildly ambitious 100-day goal. The method was pioneered by the Rapid Results Institute (RRI) to help communities around the world tackle tough problems. In youth homelessness, these 100-day goals will involve ending the experiences of homelessness for a large number of young people in each community. With just 100 days to make things happen, everyone from community leaders to front-line workers are challenged to do their work differently, change systems, and innovate their way to their desired goal.  The compressed time frame, high visibility, and support from coaches, peers, and federal leaders creates rapid progress.

This work is made possible through funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and private philanthropic partners. RRI provides the overall design of the 100-Day Challenges and is partnering with HomeBase to offer coaching support to each community as they embark on their 100-Day Journey.
