“The Northwest Michigan Coalition to End Homelessness says taking care of those experiencing homelessness should be addressed as an urgent cause.
They’ve set a goal of helping 20 families in 100 days.
Director of Northwest Michigan Coalition to End Homelessness, Ashley Halladay-Schmandt says, ‘Through out the field of ending homelessness communities often take part in these challenges to really create urgency and public will around an issue. So that’s what we’re trying to do.’
So far they’ve gained steam and assistance from other organizations like Goodwill Northern Michigan, Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency, and Northwest Michigan Supportive Housing.
‘This is a unique opportunity. It’s a crazy time, but it’s also a great time to try something different. We’ve never done a 100 Day Challenge,’ said CEO of Goodwill Northern Michigan, Dan Buron.”
