Street Roots has been very busy on the homeless advocacy and
policy front as of late.
Street Roots, along with many of our partners are helping
lead the, “We are the Safety Net” campaign. The campaign has worked very hard
to secure local funding for homeless and housing services.
The campaign worked with people experiencing poverty to tell
a broader narrative through social media about obtaining housing and accessing
services. At the same time, the coalition worked very hard with local officials
to help secure funding.
