Mesa County Registry Week

Mesa County conducted our first Registry Week, March 5th to March 9th. For results, please see our Updates page.

As part of Community Solution’s 100,000 Homes Campaign, the Grand Valley Coalition for the Homeless (or Mesa County) is planning a week long effort to identify and help persons who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless with the hope of connecting these individuals and families to housing and services.

The goal of the Mesa County Registry Week is to create a by-name registry of people living on our streets, in shelters, or on the edge, enabling us to prioritize those who have been out there the longest and who are the most vulnerable.  What we learn together during this week will help us obtain measurable outcomes based on solid data, identify barriers and gaps to services, and prioritize housing solutions for vulnerable veterans, families, youth and others most in need.

The campaign is recruiting dedicated volunteers to help survey Mesa County’ most vulnerable homeless individuals and families. We also need volunteers to help us enter data. We surveyed individuals each day, starting Monday, March 5 through Friday, March 9, 2012.
