Nashville has changed the way it takes care of the homeless, making the Homeless Coalition the Homeless Governing Board.

The group plans to make meeting the needs of the homeless population more efficient. They're hoping to eliminate red tape, and better match people with their needs.

"They can cme together now under the committee structure and work together on building a systems approach to end homelessness in Nashville now unified," said Judith Tackett.

The group helps the homeless with issues like getting ID's, food stamps, and ultimately finding housing. They say this change brings them closer to their goal.

The first meeting of the newly created 25-member board is July 18.
