SHPA ADVOCACY CORNER
Sign On & Support


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 Homelessness is needed to finally end homelessness in Illinois.
