For the next five weeks, we will share 14 Myths of Homelessness and the Real Facts on Homelessness to help expose myths related to housing, homelessness, and funding opportunities with our friends, family, and colleagues.
We encourage you to review the myths as they are revealed and get the #RealFactsOnHomelessness through this email, National Coalition for the Homeless'sFacebook page, and the HousingNow!2020 Twitter account. Share, like, and encourage the people you know to engage with HousingNow!2020 as we move into the new year with a breadth of knowledge and feeling reinvigorated in the movement.
Myth 1: HUD Point-in-Time numbers are an accurate count of people experiencing homelessness in the United States. Get the RealFacts here.
Myth 2: Coordinated Entry Systems (CES) required by HUD are connecting more people with more housing resources. Get the RealFacts here.
Myth 3: Coordinated Assessments accurately identify which people experiencing homelessness need housing and services the most. Get the RealFacts here.
Once we know the facts, we can start providing solutions that work. Please join us in this education effort and provide your thoughts about solutions here.
