Some may say the causes of and solutions to homelessness are complicated, but Mobilizer readers know they aren’t. If all people had access to affordable housing, quality health care, and livable incomes, we could end homelessness.
As Congress returns to DC this week, they have the opportunity to advance these three related causes. The Appropriations Committees will begin drafting bills this week to fund health centers, low-income housing, and homelessness assistance programs for the upcoming year. Additionally, the Senate is set to begin debate on a bill to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10/hour.
Take 30 seconds and make a call to your members of Congress. With your advocacy, we can build support for health centers, housing, and raising the minimum wage, ultimately reducing the burdens and incidence of homelessness. Read the Mobilizer.
