TOGETHER WE CAN ERADICATE HOMELESSNESS CAUSED BY WRONGFUL EVICTIONS
Because Nobody Should Have to Be Homeless
Dedicated to Making a Difference
As reported by EndHomElessness.org,
“Homeless services systems do not have enough resources to fully meet the needs of everyone experiencing homelessness. Thus, it is helpful to examine the difficult decisions they must make, including how to allot the limited funds available to them.”
Over the last five years, the number of temporary housing beds (Emergency Shelter, Safe Haven, and Transitional Housing) has decreased by 9 percent. A national-level snapshot of these beds during the Point-in-Time count is informative. Individual community circumstances vary.
However, in the aggregate, systems were able to offer a year-round bed to only 51 percent of individuals and 100 percent of people in families (the latter with a surplus of over 15,000 beds).”
COMMUNITIES, COMPANIES, AND PEOPLE WHO ARE COMMITTED TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD TODAY:
Landlords, banks, hard money lenders, foreclosure companies and unscrupulous law firms are pulling out all the stops when it comes to collecting on the uncollectible. Hard working and impoverished individuals doing their best to make ends meet are facing the challenges of a lifetime when it comes to making their payment obligations during distressed economic times.
A home is not a commodity, a service, a good or a luxury. A roof over one’s head is among the most basic fundamentals of life; one that separates human kind from the animal kingdom. And yet, agents acting on the behalf of banks and property owners evict the underprivileged from their homes as if canceling an overdue Netflix account.

WHAT WE DO
Eradicating Homelessness Caused by Wrongful Evictions
Protecting tenants can directly effect the rate of homelessness. This includes ensuring the availability of affordable housing and temporary housing alternatives.
Homelessness caused by wrongful evictions are preventable and can be addressed by understanding your rights as a renter.
Spreading awareness about homelessness caused by wrongful evictions and creating change through policy advocacy is a key part of our mission.
Housing Instability and the Eviction Epidemic
The lack of affordable housing has led to increased housing instability and an eviction epidemic.
These evictions and the subsequent housing instability they case are one of the leading factors causing homelessness today.
In addition, discriminatory barriers to housing can cause and prolong homelessness.
While more data and research is needed, existing studies indicate that stronger renters’ rights help prevent and end homelessness.
Join our mission to end homelessness caused by wrongful evictions and have a lasting impact on your community.
