A growing number of communities across the country are proving this is an achievable reality by reaching a milestone known as functional zero.   In order to propel this movement to end homelessness up and over a tipping point, we are working with communities to solve the most persistent challenges that stand in the way. With rigor and data-driven solutions, we are working with communities to: prevent inflow into homelessness from happening in the first place; build and sustain homeless response systems that can continuously end, rather than manage, homelessness for populations across geography; and quickly deliver affordable housing that can close the housing gap. Together, we are proving that homelessness is solvable.    Nonprofit Architect Podcast Links      Website: http://nonprofitarchitect.org
