BENEFITING: The National Alliance to End Homelessness, Inc.
Hello- Many of you may know that with each passing day more and more single individuals and families become homeless. In fact, the reality is that most of us are living paycheck-to-paycheck in our own lives. If you are like me; when you see the needy and homeless you can't help but want to do something to assist them. Sure you may not want to give them money directly for one reason or another. You may even offer to buy them a meal from time-to-time which I am sure is always appreciated. However the reality is those isolated events can only go so far. In hopes to get more individuals to help on a national and even global level I wanted to introduce The National Alliance to End Homelessness. The Alliance works toward ending homelessness by improving homelessness policy, building on-the-ground capacity, and educating opinion leaders. The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a leading voice on federal homelessness policy. From advocating for improved federal policy to analyzing enacted and proposed legislation, the Alliance actively engages in the legislative process. The Alliance works collaboratively with public, private, and nonprofit partners to develop, analyze, and advocate for policy solutions to homelessness. The Alliance provides communities across the country with best practices, how-to kits, and technical assistance trainings to help them implement solutions developed through policy, research, and practice. The Homelessness Research Institute (HRI) – the research and education arm of the National Alliance to End Homelessness – builds the intellectual capital around solutions to homelessness. HRI advances data and research so that policymakers, practitioners, and the public have the best information about trends in homelessness and emerging solutions. With this information hopefully your eyes have been opened into the depths of which the National Alliance to End Homelessness is going to save those lost in our society. While I do not believe in asking for you to contribute to a set amount would I would ask is that if you have $1 that is enough to help someone move that closer to getting off the streets. Will you go to bat for them?
