I'll admit I thought it was a bit crazy, when I heard that some places in Michigan had pledged to end veteran and chronic homelessness by 2016.
Zero: 2016 is a national campaign that urges communities to reduce veteran homelessness to virtually zero by the end of 2015, and reduce chronic homelessness to virtually zero by the end of 2016.
Washtenaw, Oakland, and Genessee counties and the city of Detroit joined the campaign in January.
Washtenaw and Oakland counties are getting close to the goal.
