On December 11th, 2018, AT&T announced their Believe Dallas initiative, which committed $565,000 across 10 organizations to aid the homeless/marginalized population of Dallas.
While the money was key, the difference maker was the collaboration among the receiving organizations. Led by the regional HUD Continuum of Care agency, SARAH, these organizations rallied together to identify and solve the most common issues facing veterans living in or on the brink of homelessness.
What lessons/experience could AT&T and the receiving organizations build on to have a similar impact in Dallas? Likely much, and the first step would be to begin collaborating with them on this nationwide issue.
