Your voice is especially needed in fight to end homelessness
Your Member of Congress is an Appropriator. Will you write to them?
Since our initial call to action on March 2, advocates have sent more than 620 letters to Congress asking them to invest in known solutions to homelessness. You haven't taken action yet, but it's not too late.
You are in a unique position because you have a federal representative on an Appropriations Committee. These are the members of Congress responsible for passing the budget that affects programs working to end homelessness. The easy step of sending an email lets your member of Congress know ending homelessness matters.
