Speak Up

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Silence and lack of knowledge about the broad reach of homelessness play a large part in why it persists. Affordable housing is increasingly out of reach. Speak up and show compassion for families and individuals facing challenging circumstances. Raise your voice in support of solutions that help our communities better provide a safe place for everyone to call home.

Get involved by joining the online conversation using the hashtag #CloseToHomeCo.
