Our Vision

A nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood and a chance to build a better future.

Our mission

Our mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.

Helping the community

We recognize that poverty is a complex problem that requires a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of thousands of volunteers. We provide food, shelter, and support services for homeless families. We provide advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent their becoming homeless. And we educate people about poverty and the means to combat it.
