Hi all, thanks again for everyone’s input. I wanted to share the finished short with the group.
I’m downtown at 4th and Everett. I’m watching the Central City concern / Downtown Clean and Safe street cleanup team. And I’m wondering if Proud Ground isn’t the more direct route to getting folks off the streets. Isn’t the contract for Clean and Safe up for grabs? Open? Willing?

This webinar from the National Alliance to End Homelessness, transcript and, especially, the SLIDES from the speaker from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities are very good.
Slides also suggest specific advocacy steps.

Very cool! Have you checked out Health Care for the homeless? It started in Boston.

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 Homelessness (https://endhomelessness.org/
), 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, but nonetheless.)
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 advance!
