Bring America Home NOW!

OVERVIEW

The National Coalition for the Homeless is spearheading the launch of Bring America Home Now:  A Comprehensive Grassroots Campaign to End Homelessness in the U.S. Led by people who have  themselves experienced homelessness, we will focus on the passage of federal legislation aimed at addressing the interconnected solutions to the decades-long epidemic of homelessness in the United States. 

The campaign focuses on 6 major policy areas:

Housing is a basic human right that should be available to all Americans.

Health and homelessness are inextricably linked: a safe, stable home is the prerequisite of health and well-being.

Employment provides not only income, but also meaning and connection. Livable incomes are essential to prevent and homelessness. For those unable to work, adequate public benefits are necessary to ensure stability in housing.

Education and training can play a critical role for many–children, youth, and adults– in equipping people with the knowledge and skills needed for economic mobility.

Homelessness is a civil rights issue. People experiencing homelessness are too often victim of hate crimes. Homelessness disproportionately impacts people of color. And LGBTQ people/individuals face discrimination and barriers around to accessing jobs and housing.

Homelessness is inextricably linked to systemic racism. Racial equity must be prioritized in our work to end and prevent homelessness.
