Housing 1000 April Newsletter: Ending Homelessness with Crowdfunding, Celebrations, and More!

Our April Newsletter is out. Go take a look!

Housing ONE
Most people want to do something to help when they see a homeless person on the street. You might want to give food, or a blanket, but you don’t exactly carry those things in your wallet…You want to help the gentleman on the street you pass every day, but you don’t know how. Above all, you want to know you are helping to end homelessness.

Care Coordination Update
Living on the streets is not safe, and it’s our mission to house the most vulnerable. The sooner we get them housed and connect them with services, the better chance they all have to stabilize their health and kick-start their recovery. Each client is assigned a case manager, who will be his or her advocate throughout the housing process and beyond. At Housing 1000 we’re not just dedicated to helping house people, we’re also making sure they stay housed.

I saw homeless people I knew and had helped house back on the streets. It really brought home to me the fact that our current system isn’t working—we need to help people stay housed.”

Save the Date! Celebration at CTA
Community Technology Alliance is hosting an afternoon of celebration and appreciation for Housing 1000 volunteers, and all those supporting our collective campaign to house 1,000 chronically homeless men, women, and families by 2013.

About K.A. Erickson

I worked with Housing 1000 (http://www.housing1000sv.org/) from August 2011 until July of 2012 as an Americorps VISTA member. I am the ghost of Katherine past! I wrote a couple interviews to post automatically even after I left--from beyond the grave, as it were. ;) My current blog talks about fiction writing, world travel and other adventures: http://feistynotes.wordpress.com/
