100,000 Homes Campaign Passes its Goal!

As of June 10 this year, 2013 Buckminster Fuller Challenge Semi-Finalists the 100,000 Homes Campaign have surpassed their eponymous goal of housing “101,628 homeless Americans, including 31,171 homeless Veterans, one month ahead of their four-year July deadline. That number represents an estimated annual taxpayer savings of $1.3 billion and reflects the collective work of 238 U.S. communities who have joined the Campaign since July 2010.”

We heartily congratulate the project on their momentous accomplishment, and look forward to the continued good news from the Campaign.
