National Alliance to End Homelessness
webpage has a video of the webinar, a transcript and a
set of excellent slides from the second speaker, who was
from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities.
Hi all - really appreciate everyone on this
list and all you’re doing to make real change for our unhoused
and housing-unstable neighbors.
I just wanted to solicit some opinions
from the group. I’m making a short film right now that’s
meant to make a statement on houselessness, and I was
looking for a website to link to in the credits for good
explanations of housing-first solutions, and the
importance/efficacy of them. The potential audience is
national (not local/state level). The call to action is to
support housing-first solutions and living wage jobs, and to
demand the same of elected leaders.
I found the National Alliance to End
and from the website it looks like they have some really
good data and messaging around the topic. Anyone here have
any experience with them? I looked them up on Charity
Navigator and they have a good score there for fiscal
transparency and accountability. Mainly want to do some due
diligence and make sure they are a worthy org to drive
traffic to before I highlight their site. (Not that I expect
millions of viewers here, this is just a personal project,
Any thoughts or opinions are welcome and
appreciated. Also if you have any other organizations or web
resources to suggest, please send them my way. Thanks in
