ADVOCACY ISSUE - Housing & Homelessness
We work with people facing poverty to keep individuals and families housed and protected in their homes so they can thrive.
People should not be punished for living in poverty. Governments should not be passing laws that punish people who are trying to survive on the streets or call their vehicles homes. Landlords should not use discrimination or sketchy practices when selecting tenants or turning over a mobile home park.
