A national network of funders supporting strategic, innovative, and effective solutions to homelessness

August 2017 Member News You Can Use


August has been a heavy month. Between the horrific events that took place in Charlottesville and the disastrous and heartbreaking scenes unfolding in Texas, we are reminded that we are all connected and when one group of people hurts, we all hurt. Funders Together to End Homelessness believes that philanthropy has a role to play in the healing of this country. 

In this special edition of our Member News, we are focusing on these events and the responses to each. We are working with peers and partners to provide useful resources that can help guide conversations and planning around both Charlottesville and Hurricane Harvey, as well as focusing on how we bring funders together around these issues. If you have additional thoughts you would like to share, please feel free to contact us at any time
