An ounce of prevention...

These past months of the pandemic have driven home the point that we can and need to do much better as a society for people who are homeless and living in deep poverty.

An ounce of prevention...

We've been committed to economic, social, and racial justice for over 50 years. It's a long journey, but with your donations, we keep getting closer to a just society.

I want to help!

It is community that supports and energizes us, and together with your help we accept this historic challenge. Indeed, we are all in this together.
