HousingCLT and the Greater Charlotte Apartment Association: How Private Sector Multifamily Housing Providers Can Help End Homelessness in Charlotte.
Kirby Davis, the Chief Operating Officer for Nashville, Tennessee-based property management firm Freeman Webb and a former members of Nashville’s Metropolitan Homelessness Commission, is the featured speaker. Mr. Davis made a commitment in early 2013 for a percentage of Freeman Webb’s multifamily inventory to be available to homeless individuals and families. By closely collaborating with Nashville’s social service providers using alternative housing screening criteria for their homeless clients, Freeman Webb and nearly a dozen other property management firms have helped provide housing for an average of 54 homeless people per month since June of 2013.
