National Programs to End Homelessness

National Coalition to End Homelessness

The National Coalition for
the Homeless

is a national network of people who are currently experiencing or who have experienced homelessness, activists and advocates, community-based and faith-based service providers, and others committed to a single mission: To end and prevent homelessness while ensuring the immediate needs of those experiencing homelessness are met and their civil rights are respected and protected.

We believe that safe, decent, and affordable housing is a human right (as written in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article Twenty-Five, Section One).

We are fighting to achieve an end to homelessness in the U.S. through the Bring American Home NOW! Campaign.

National Alliance to End Homelessness

What is a coordinated systems approach?

To address homelessness, communities should take a coordinated approach, moving from a collection of individual programs to a community-wide response that is strategic and data driven. Communities that have adopted this approach use data about the needs of those experiencing homelessness to inform how they allocate resources, services, and programs.

United States Interagency Council on Homelessness

Read All In: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.

The plan was developed by USICH with the collective thinking of 19 federal agencies that make up the USICH Council, and it will be updated annually to reflect the latest evidence, progress, and input.

To develop All In, USICH undertook a comprehensive and inclusive input process that included more than 1,500 online comments and 81 listening sessions that gathered feedback from thousands of providers, elected officials, advocates, and others—including more than 500 who have experienced homelessness. The process included people from nearly 650 communities, tribes, and territories.
