Homes for Families is an advocacy organization that builds powerful relationships between homeless and formerly homeless families, shelter/service providers, concerned citizens, the business community, government and others who share the goal of ending family homelessness.

We promote family empowerment and self-advocacy and bridge diverse constituencies to promote collaborative policy making.

Through educating, organizing and advocating, we help lessen the devastating effects of homelessness on families and the communities in which they live.
