Destination Home

2018

Destination: Home, with a $50 million donation from Cisco, launched the Supportive Housing and Innovation Fund. The fund was developed to support the production of permanent supportive housing, support programs to prevent people from becoming homeless, and pioneering technology to improve services for the homeless. “With this commitment to Destination: Home, I believe we are deepening our connection even further to the community we call home. Though homelessness seems intractable, I believe that it is a solvable issue. I also feel very strongly that we have an opportunity—and a responsibility—to do something about it.”- Chuck Robbins
