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.
Funding for homelessness assistance is greater than ever before.
There is more homeless housing and shelter than ever before.
Unsheltered homelessness is growing faster than ever.
Who We Are
Hope Street Coalition is a dedicated group of citizens, advocates, and organizations working together to change policy and bring housing, hope, and healing to communities struggling with homelessness.
What We Do
Hope Street Coalition Addresses the Intersection of Homelessness, Addiction, and Mental Health by Advocating for Effective Policy, Helping Communities, and Raising Awareness.
Communities need more housing and more quality treatment to help the untreated and unhoused. Housing That Heals provides both and addresses the fastest growing population of the homeless - the addicted and mentally ill.
Hope Street Coalition is about focusing on the population that is growing the fastest and suffering the most – the unhoused mentally ill and addicted.
Raising awareness, equipping citizens, and advocating for specific changes in local, state, and federal policies will start to solve the current crisis. What’s needed are both/and solutions and the boldness to call out what’s not working.
