Community members, policy makers, practitioners, and researchers must work together to tackle The Grand Challenge to End Homelessness.
During the course of a year, nearly 1.5 million Americans experience homelessness for at least one night. Periods of homelessness often have serious and lasting effects on personal development, health, and well-being. Our challenge is to expand proven approaches that have worked in communities across the country, develop new service innovations and technologies, and adopt policies that promote affordable housing and basic income security.
