When a Florida Community Springs into Action, an Ailing Man Finds a Home

José spent 30 years homeless in Florida's Treasure Coast region with a large mass growing out of his neck. By the time Angela, a local mental health professional, discovered him on the side of the highway last month, he was without food and had become too weak to stand up. With few resources available, Angela called the Mayor of Sebastian, Bob McPartlan, who came out to check on José himself.

To many Americans, homelessness can feel like a problem so big it can't be helped. Perhaps you've always wanted to help but wondered where to start...


2013 In Review

2013 was a banner year for our national movement to find permanent housing for 100,000 homeless Americans. Here's a snapshot of what participating communities accomplished together and where we stand as we head into our final year!


75,000 Homeless Americans Home for the Holidays!

Happy holidays!

We have good news to report: we're 3/4 of the way to our goal! This is a tipping point and a huge milestone in our work together. Thank you for your ongoing partnership and support!


After 12 Years, a Veteran Moves Home for the Holidays

Donald, a former Army reservist, spent 12 years homeless on the streets of Philadelphia. After repeated failed attempts to find housing, he expected to remain homeless forever. Then, last month, with the help of Pathways to Housing PA, a local organization participating in the 100,000 Homes Campaign, Donald moved into his own apartment. His new home is not a shelter bed or a transitional unit; it is a permanent place of his own.


20,000 Vulnerable and Chronically Homeless Veterans Housed

Since launching in July of 2010, the 100,000 Homes Campaign and its partners have helped communities and local V.A. sites house more than 20,000 homeless veterans, the Campaign announced today. The milestone represents the fulfillment of the Campaign's Clinton Global Initiative commitment through Got Your 6, a national partner effort to support veterans as leaders civic assets.

A New Home for a Veteran and His Family

As a young man, Stacey worked in a high explosives unit in the U.S. military and served a two-year mission with the Mormon church. After returning from the military, however, he spent roughly 15 years homeless in Salt Lake City, battling depression and diabetes while struggling to survive on the streets. For the last three years, both he and his wife, Marylyn, also diabetic, sought refuge at a local shelter, but without an insulin refrigerator and regular health care, managing their common condition was a challenge.


Campaign Reaches Halfway Milestone -- 50,000 People Housed!

We always knew this day would come, but it used to seem much further away! Today, the 100,000 Homes Campaign announced that its participating communities had housed more than 50,000 chronic and vulnerable homeless Americans. That number includes more than 1,000 families, 5,000 seniors, and 15,000 veterans of the United States armed forces. We couldn't be prouder to celebrate this day.
