Advocating For Change
Homelessness is proving to be a problem of policy not - of poverty or housing.
Laws, regulations, and funding restrictions have reduced access to treatment and failed to create appropriate places for live and thrive. There is more money and more housing and shelter for the homeless than ever before. Yet, homelessness, particularly among the most vulnerable, such as those experiencing mental illness and substance abuse disorder, continues to increase.
That's a matter of bad policy.
Changing the system requires influencing decision and policy makers to make it easier to access treatment and harder to deteriorate on the street.
Join Hope Street Coalition to change the policies on homelessness, mental illness, and addiction.
Hope Street drafts legislation and regulatory language to change policy at the federal state, and local levels. We influence the laws and policy that impact the untreated and unhoused.
Hope Street meets with decision makers and their staff to make that case for practical solutions to the crisis of homelessness, addiction, and untreated serious mental illness.
