Initiatives

Advocacy

Increase resources directed at addressing homelessness. Fight ordinances that penalize victims of domestic violence and effectively make being homeless extremely challenging. Assist with mental health initiatives for homelessness or at risk of being homeless.

Additional Housing

Help create state and local policies that encourage housing for very-low income households. Partner with home creators to navigate red tape and take advantage of federal affordable housing incentives.

Capacity Building / Re-entry to community

Facilitate sharing of best practices and successful models. Help communities learn how to assess needs and services. Facilitate positive re-entry of homeless persons into their communities and positive relationships.

Connecting Key Players

Bring together local faith-based, non-profit, educational and governmental service providers to maximize effectiveness. Help build statewide assessment system for those seeking shelter services.

Employment

Connect service providers with training programs. Encourage local employers to actively recruit qualified workers.
