It leaves kids feeling isolated and robs them of future opportunities. And it impacts entire communities, including all of us who live here.

Homelessness affects everything from personal safety, mental health and access to healthy food, to employment and education. It’s difficult to keep a job or go to school if you don’t have a safe place to sleep or the countless other everyday things many of us take for granted. Safe, adequate and affordable housing can help people leave poverty, maintain employment and become full participants in our community.

Barriers are often amplified for vulnerable individuals, including seniors, people living with disabilities and newcomers.
