100-Day Youth Challenge
In 2019, following the success of four years of preventing and ending youth homelessness, the Jacksonville/Northeast Florida community was selected as one of five to take part in the 2020 100-Day Youth Challenge Cohort 5, spearheaded by the Rapid Results Institute.

Despite a temporary standstill of the project due to COVID-19, the local challenge team, a core group of youth-serving providers and Changing Homelessness, housed 27 youth and is determined to continue the work!
