Solving family homelessness requires more than giving families a place to live for a few months. Most families need permanent housing combined with essential services, or they are soon homeless again.
The lack of federal resources allocated for families has resulted in historic levels of family homelessness in cities and towns across America. It is time to take this issue into our own hands to tell policymaker what families need.
The National Network to End Family Homelessness will give a strong voice to providers working on the frontlines in local communities. Join us to demand decisive action now. Our goal is to have active members in all 50 states.
Guided by research, local knowledge and experience, the National Network will bring promising practices and evidence-based programs to every community where families are homeless. Working across systems of health care, mental health, substance use, child welfare, and criminal justice, we will bring new solutions to state and federal policymakers to make families a priority.
With leadership from the National Network to End Family Homelessness, programs and organizations from around the country will disseminate and implement research-based solutions, and mobilize political will to end this national tragedy.
