What We Do To Solve Homelessness

INVESTIGATE

Data is the universal language. We cannot solve the problem of homelessness until we understand that problem and communicate its effects both statistically and financially.

LEAD

Social change doesn’t just happen because it is the right thing to do. Social change occurs when someone forcefully drives the initiative.

ADVOCATE

A community cannot solve a pervasive problem like homelessness until the citizens of that community have an accurate understanding of the problem and the myths surrounding the homeless are dispelled.

ENGAGE

A community is composed of many segments and groups, and each group has its own unique interests in the homeless problem. Homelessness can be eradicated when each group’s interests are embraced and each group’s needs are met.

ORGANIZE

Trains ride on rails, and electricity flows through wires. So systems and structures give substance to any worthwhile venture, and the local effort to solve homelessness is more readily advanced by an enduring structure that governs the effort.

FUND

It is more expensive to continue the status quo than it is to house the homeless, and funds are available from the public, private, and independent sectors.
