'Together We Are Home'
A virtual community gathering
to end and prevent homelessness
Thursday, September 23, 2021 | 12-1pm
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this vital community conversation!
Together, we heard about how COVID has impacted homelessness and housing instability, as well as the broad-based coalitions and innovative partnerships that are rising in response. Through the combined efforts of individual supporters and Community Sponsors, we raised critical resources that will go towards:
Helping people to transition out of homelessness
Supporting the ongoing housing stability of our most vulnerable formerly-homeless neighbors
Preventing families from being evicted
Leading innovative, collaborative efforts to create new solutions to national issues, like the Renew Collaborative
"Home Starts with People. Breaking cycles of homelessness starts with support. That is why HomeStart is people-first: grounded in the power of building authentic, supportive relationships between advocates and the people we work with."
Watch a recording of the event below:
Our Stabilization team is the primary support system for many formerly chronically homeless clients living with disabilities and on fixed incomes, who because of COVID-19 are struggling to afford food and household supplies.
Out of the Shelters
Our Housing Search team is continuing their work to move clients into permanent housing. Crowded shelters make social distancing difficult and the funds to support these urgent moves is essential right now.
While the moratorium on evictions has stopped the legal process for now, the loss of income for many low and middle-class families is going to have a long-term impact. HomeStart is preparing for an increased need to our eviction prevention program.
