2014 Biennial Study Release

The 2014 Study can be found at: Homelessness in Knoxville and Knox County, TN: 2013-2014.
(Please see the "Resources" tab for an executive summary.)

The KKCHC and KnoxHMIS released a study on homelessness on April 22, 2014 at the Knoxville-Knox Couny CAC LT Ross Building at 10:00AM.

For the past twenty-eight years, the coalition has explored the depth and experience of homelessness in our communities.  Each study has been an empirical attempt to "put a face" to the experience of homelessness.  The KnoxHMIS data have been presented in an annual report for the past five years and provides information on the scope and complexities of homelessness in Knoxville-Knox County.

The KKCHC study looks at homelessness by interviewing individuals and families experiencing homelessness at a specific point in time (January 29--31 and February 5); whereas, the KnoxHMIS report includes date from the 2013 calendar year.

Each study offers a unique perspective on the landscape of homelessness while holding in common that homelessness impacts not only single men and women, but families as well.

Homelessness remains a persistent social and public policy issue that warrants community dialogue and effective solutions.


KKCHC elects officers from the general membership at our annual December meeting.  To elect officers, a nominating committee is formed, nominations are presented to the general membership, and a vote occurs.

KKCHC wishes to congratulate the 2014 officers!
