'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 learned about how COVID has impacted homelessness and housing instability, as well as the broad-based coalitions and innovative partnerships that are rising in response.

Providing Basics

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.

Expecting Evictions

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.

  •  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."
