Faith-based organizations serve as the backbone of the emergency shelter system in this country – operating at a minimum nearly 30 percent of emergency shelter beds for families and single adults at the national level.  They play a critical role in delivering services to people in crisis and significantly fewer households experiencing homelessness would be served and more would remain in crisis without them. Homelessness will not be ended without faith-based organizations.

Emergency shelters play a critical role when it comes to ending homelessness. Over the years, this system has received little attention so this month, the Alliance and its Center for Capacity Building will kick-off The Emergency Shelter Webinar Series, a six-month installment of webinars and complementary resources and tools dedicated to guiding and supporting communities interested in improving the way they serve those experiencing homelessness and in need of shelter.

Federal Policy Brief  |  March 17, 2017

President Trump released his “skinny budget,” today. The proposed cuts to programs that help poor and low-income people are enormous, and the increases small. This budget proposal starts off the Fiscal Year 2018 budget season, and there will be lots of back and forth with Congress and opportunities for you to weigh in.

The proposal was not very detailed, and there is still a lot that we don’t know. But here’s an overview of its impact on homelessness.

Solutions Brief  |  March 3, 2017

The State of California recognizes that housing is a key component of families’ health, economic and social well-being. In order to meet this need, the state is using a rapid re-housing approach to provide housing for families experiencing homelessness and has created a new program within Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) to pay for it.

A chronically homeless person costs the tax payer an average of $35,578 per year. This study shows how costs on average are reduced by 49.5% when they are placed in supportive housing. Supportive housing costs on average $12,800, making the net savings roughly $4,800 per year. Congress can enact bipartisan solutions to finally end chronic homelessness by 2017. To make this happen, Congress must increase funding for HUD’s Homeless Assistance account by $414 million to $2.664 billion total, as requested by the budget.
