Who We Are

Boone County Coalition to End Homelessness was originally started as a task force of the Basic Needs Coalition in the mid-2000's. At that time our name was Functional Zero Task Force. 


Functional Zero is that point when a community's homeless services system is able to prevent homelessness whenever possible and ensure that when homelessness does occur, it is rare, brief, and one-time.

In 2022, to more accurately describe what we do, the members of the group voted to change our name to the Boone County Coalition to End Homelessness.
