The Day at a Glance

Unsheltered individuals are the largest subgroup of people experiencing homelessness. As unsheltered homelessness increases – both in numbers and visibility – there is an urgency to find solutions to end their homelessness. We know that in order to end homelessness, we need an effective crisis response systems and ready access to permanent housing, employment, and other services. However, with the exception of subgroups such as veterans and people who are disabled, unsheltered individuals are rarely prioritized and seldom receive housing assistance.  

Funders can help. The 2019 Funders Forum, held on February 20 prior to the National Alliance to End Homelessness's Solutions for Individual Homeless Adults national conference, will focus on what funders can do to build the public and political will to help end the homelessness of unsheltered individuals. During the day, we’ll learn about this population that faces great vulnerability, what funders around the country are doing, and how to build the public and political will to change the system. 

Check back soon for our 2019 Funders Forum agenda!

We joined Funders Together because we believe in the power of philanthropy to play a major role in ending homelessness, and we know we have much to learn from funders across the country.

-Christine Marge, Director of Housing and Financial Stability at United Way of Greater Los Angeles

I am thankful for the local partnerships here in the Pacific Northwest that we’ve been able to create and nurture thanks to the work of Funders Together. Having so many of the right players at the table makes our conversations – and all of our efforts – all the richer and more effective.

-David Wertheimer, Deputy Director at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Very often a lack of jobs and money is not the cause of poverty, but the symptom. The cause may lie deeper in our failure to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities, in a lack of education and training, in a lack of medical care and housing, in a lack of decent communities in which to live and bring up their children.

-President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1964 State of the Union Address

Funders Together has given me a platform to engage the other funders in my community. Our local funding community has improved greatly to support housing first models and align of resources towards ending homelessness.

-Leslie Strnisha, Vice President at Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland

Our family foundation convenes local funders and key community stakeholders around strategies to end homelessness in Houston. Funders Together members have been invaluable mentors to us in this effort, traveling to our community to share their expertise and examples of best practices from around the nation.

-Nancy Frees Fountain, Managing Director at The Frees Foundation
