Homelessness is a Policy Problem.
Let's Change the Policy.
Hope Street Coalition advocates for policy change that addresses homelessness, mental illness, and addiction.
The current one-size-fits-all approach that emphasizes
housing is inadequate.
We need help for the unhoused and treatment for the
mentally ill and addicted.
Current homeless policy has failed to reduce the number of people living on the street. There is more funding and capacity than ever, yet the number of people living unsheltered grows every year.
Funding for homelessness assistance is greater than ever.
More homeless housing and shelter is available than ever before.
