Last summer and fall, Huckleberry House and six other Columbus agencies participated in A Way Home America’s 100-Day Challenge. The 100-Day Challenge is a project designed to stimulate intense collaboration, innovation, and execution, all in pursuit of a wildly ambitious 100-day goal.
The method was pioneered by the Rapid Results Institute to help communities around the world tackle tough problems. In youth homelessness, these 100-day goals involve ending the experiences of homelessness for a large number of young people in each community.
