How we’ll end street homelessness

Achieve a quality By-Name List

By knowing who is on the streets, people stop being “the homeless” and start becoming people we know.

Line up affordable housing

Advocate for a greater investment in permanent and supportive housing for those who need it, giving people dignity and a home.

Provide ongoing support

Be there every day for those who need assistance, and provide the services that people need in order to stay housed.

Connect people to the community

Work collaboratively with health-care services and agencies to ensure homelessness is rare, brief and non-recurring.
