Published by paceminterris
On any given night, 3,000 to 4,000 individuals and
families are homeless in Nashville. This number is
the best estimate that the Metropolitan Homelessness
Commission currently has – but it is just that,
an estimate. The estimate is based on point-in-time
numbers and service provider numbers collected by
the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency
(MDHA), annual numbers from the Metropolitan
Nashville Public School system, and observations
from outreach workers and people who serve the
Nashville homeless population.
