Paying it Forward: National Coalition for the Homeless


Based on findings from the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty, Urban Institute and the National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers, the annual homeless rate of people in the United States is between 2.3 and 3.5 million people, approximately 1% of the population. Between 38% and 39% of these people are children.

The National Coalition for the Homeless is a 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 ending homelessness.

If you are interested in joining the fight against homelessness, there are many ways that you can help. By CAREing (contribute, advocate, reach out, educate) you can help to alleviate homelessness. If you are looking for a place to volunteer in your area, check out the National Coalition for the Homeless' directory. With the holiday season approaching, there are many housing and homeless advocacy coalitions that could use your help.

You also have the option of donating money to the National Coalition for the Homeless. Whether it is time or money that you have, you can always help to make a difference.
