Jerry, a mechanic from Nashville, lost his housing after going through a divorce and finding himself unemployed. He had been homeless for 1.5 years when a volunteer for How’s Nashville, the collaborative leading the local 100,000 Homes Campaign effort, found him on the street and asked him to complete a short health survey. That volunteer shared Jerry's survey results with local housing advocates, and only days later, Jerry was taking a hot shower in his new, permanent apartment.
