Photos: Homeless initiative celebrates 1,000th family moving into permanent housing

When Tia Jones got the call yesterday, she was elated. The Family and Senior Homeless Initiative reached its goal three and a half years early when it helped its 1,000th family transition into permanent housing on February 8. One month and sixteen more families later, it's time to celebrate. As a former member of the program, would she like to come down? "Oh, yes, yes, yes," Jones responded. "I'm one of them."
