No parents should ever have to explain to their children that they no longer have a safe and secure place to call a home. As a mother of two young children, my heart goes out to families who are experiencing homelessness.
I’m proud of the work the Obama Administration and HUD are doing to end homelessness.
Whether it is those who suffer from addiction or mental illness, those who have worn our country’s uniform, victims of foreclosure, or homeless families—Secretary Donovan and the Obama Administration are committed not simply to reducing homelessness, but ending it.
In 2010, the Obama Administration announced the nation’s first ever comprehensive federal strategy to end homelessness, building upon established interagency partnerships such as HUD-VASH to help homeless veterans and leveraging new collaborations through the Interagency Council on Homelessness.
No one should ever have to endure homelessness.
If you are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, or know someone that is homeless, we have resources that may help you.
