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

Co-Sponsored Webinar: House, Stabilize, Thrive: Disrupting Homelessness & Poverty

Friday, December 4, 2020 | 1:30-3:00pm PT

Funders Together to End Homelessness is excited to co-sponsor this program presented by Northern California Grantmakers.

What will it take to end homelessness and poverty in the Bay Area? Leaders across the Bay Area who are working to make a positive impact on the lives of extremely low-income people have an answer –it will take all of us. No one sector, city, or county can do it alone. We must work as a region to eradicate systemic racism, and fix our existing housing and economic imbalances that perpetuate poverty and homelessness in the Bay Area. With the impacts of COVID-19 deepening our existing homelessness crisis, it is critically important for us to think and act together to create a Bay Area where everyone thrives.

Join the Bay Area Homelessness Funders Network to discuss the connection between economic and housing justice, hear a preview of the Regional Action Plan from All Home, and to determine actions philanthropy can take to ensure lasting stable housing, and true economic opportunity for extremely low-income people in the Bay Area.

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.
