Hope Street’s Advocacy Vision  

Hope Street Works Toward: 

  • The reduction of people experiencing homelessness. Hope Street Coalition supports outcome-driven approaches and programs that reduce unsheltered homelessness. 

  • The removal of treatment barriers. Hope Street Coalition seeks the removal of barriers to treatment for mental illness and addiction – the two biggest drivers of street suffering.

  • The creation of housing that heals. Hope Street Coalition supports the increase of clinically intensive residential care facilities to provide long-term stability and wellness.  Hope Street discourages the use of housing and non-clinical services as substitutes for therapeutic interventions.  

  • Better alignment between populations with interventions tied to housing that produce outcomes and healing.

  • The primacy of self-sufficiency through employment and the care and treatment of those unable to achieve self-sufficiency, such that their lives improve.
