Our Work

The Alliance works toward ending homelessness by improving homelessness policy, building on-the-ground capacity, and educating opinion leaders.

The Alliance works to prevent and end homelessness in the following ways:

Improving Policy
The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a leading voice on federal homelessness policy. From advocating for improved federal policy to analyzing enacted and proposed legislation, the Alliance actively engages in the legislative process. The Alliance works collaboratively with public, private, and nonprofit partners to develop, analyze, and advocate for policy solutions to homelessness.

Building Capacity
The Alliance provides capacity-building assistance through its Center for Capacity Building to help communities turn policy solutions and proven best practices into viable, on-the-ground programs. The Alliance provides communities across the country with best practices, how-to kits, and technical assistance trainings to help them implement solutions developed through policy, research, and practice.

Educating Opinion Leaders
The Homelessness Research Institute (HRI) – the research and education arm of the National Alliance to End Homelessness – builds the intellectual capital around solutions to homelessness. HRI advances data and research so that policymakers, practitioners, and the public have the best information about trends in homelessness and emerging solutions.
