KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A celebration Wednesday gave hundreds of homeless in Kansas City a place to live.
The 100,000 Home campaign reached its goal of finding housing for 100,000 homeless across the country. That includes 405 homeless people in Kansas City, including 103 veterans.
Paper cut outs at Restart represent everyone who’s gotten a home.
People helped by the effort say it’s given them another chance at life.
“I care about who I am and how I’m represented now, I’m a lot happier,” Victori Briggs said, who found housing through Restart.
Restart says Kansas City is also on track to eliminate chronic homelessness within three years.
