This is a community filled with caring people, and passion to help those in need. Homelessness as an epidemic arises out of complex social structures, with roots in poverty that can stretch back generations. Long lasting change in these structures require awareness of how policies and laws impact the most vulnerable and impoverished groups. Advocacy for investment in our social infrastructure with your elected officials can have the largest impact in preventing and ending homelessness. Follow our social media to learn about advocacy opportunities.
