SHPA’s advocacy work loops together regional leadership and strong relationships, moving thought into action. Working together, we can accomplish anything. SHPA is dedicated to state-wide advocacy with champions from communities across Illinois. Join us as we lift up the needs related to Supportive Housing and our ultimate goal- ensuring that every Illinoisan has a home that meets their needs in the communities they choose.
The Advocacy Committee will be the action group to help mobilize advocacy campaigns state-wide. We need passionate change makers to be the champions who will help us make the vision, created by experts in our field and grounded in the experience of those who have lived it, become our collective reality.
Our inaugural meeting will introduce SHPA’s advocacy approach, our 2021 initiatives, and next steps for our champions and committee.
Homelessness is an ongoing crisis in Illinois, exacerbated by COVID-19. The response to homelessness in Illinois is very complex, under resourced, and fragmented. Now, is a pivotal time. An end to homelessness requires collaboration around a shared vision. Housing is the solution to homelessness. Services are critical to housing stability. Leadership is needed to establish this vision. An Interagency Council on Ending Homelessnessis needed to finally end homelessness in Illinois.
