Join the Care for the Homeless

Grassroots Advocacy Network HERE

 Help us grow our team of supporters who care about fighting, preventing and ending homelessness…and are willing to pitch in and do something about it!

Grassroots organizing is connecting supporters with policy makers in their own district, neighborhood and community – to advocate for better policy on issues effecting poor people and people experiencing homelessness in New York City. It’s the most effective advocacy of all.
