The Movement to End Homelessness Starts By Listening

by Susanne Suffredin

May 6, 2013

I recently spoke to a group of college students, and realized that this new generation is growing up with homelessness as a fact of life— a part of the landscape, instead of a problem with a solution. Changing our perceptions, about what it means to be homeless and what we can do about it as a society, is crucial to making change happen. And the right story does have the power to build momentum towards action.

Right now, we’re in the middle of a big crowdfunding push to bring the @home_campaign to life. This is first and foremost an advocacy and organizing project, but every component (from film screenings to developing the app) will also include a component benefitting homeless individuals (i.e. recruiting volunteers, signing petitions, or donating to help house individuals). We’re relying on people like you to support this innovative project and help put this issue back on the front burner.

Please give what you can and join the movement to fight homelessness.

We deserve to live in a country where everyone has a home. And I hope that @home_campaign helps build the will to do it.

This project will be featured in GOOD's Saturday series Push for Good—our guide to crowdfunding creative progress.
