WE BELIEVE that ...

A Permanent Home Is A Basic Human Right

A Place To Call "Home" Is Needed If We Are To Reach Our Full Potential As Human Beings

Education Eliminates Prejudice Against Homelessness & Its Causes

It Is Important to Treat All People With Respect Regardless Of Their Housing Situation

Our Actions Should Aim To Preserve The Dignity Of Those Experiencing Homelessness

We Can Eliminate Homelessness By Working Together


WE DO NOT

Describe A Person By Their Condition

(We say "a person experiencing homelessness" or "a person who is housing-insecure" instead of "a homeless person")

Make Assumptions About Or Judge Those We Seek To Help

(The causes of homelessness are many. We strive to focus on solutions)

There were about 161,548 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in California in 2020. www.usich.gov/homelessness-statistics/ca
