The mission statement from the National Alliance is “The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a nonprofit, non-partisan, organization committed to preventing and ending homelessness in the United States. By improving policy, building capacity, and educating opinion leaders, the Alliance has become a leading voice on this issue.” The organization is very helpful and they are making the United States a better place for everyone. The National Alliance to End Homelessness is located in Washington D.C. The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a nationwide project/organization that finds homeless all over the United States and tries to help. An address that the main buildings are located at would be 518 K Street NW, Suite 410, Washington, DC. Some significant actions that have been taken by the National Alliance to End Homelessness have been that they have help lots of people and they are trying to educate people on how to help the homeless. The organization says that every dollar you give goes to the homeless immediately. In 1983, a group of wonderful people started to provided shelter and food for people who did not have it. This small group grew over the years to become the National Alliance to End Homelessness. So many people have become partners with the Alliance that is the highest ranking homeless helper in the United States. The main problem for the National Alliance to End Homelessness would be that they want everyone to have a home to sleep and food to eat but, its hard to find out how many homeless people their are in the United States, making it harder to give everyone food and shelter. The National Alliance to End Homelessness is working very hard on different issues that come up when it comes to Homelessness. Some of the issues would be veterans that have no home to go to, they also focus on teens that have no home because they have been kicked out, abandoned, or ran away. Another would be mental or physical well being. Some people’s brains just don’t work as well as others making it very hard for them to pay bills, get a job, or make sure that they have family to watch them. This leads to very serious cases of homelessness. This is what the National Alliance is trying to stop. Some of the things they are doing to stop this is making sure that the first thing they get is a home to sleep in and some food. The next step would be to find out what problem the person has. After this they will get therapy, rehab, and other types of medical help to benefit them and get them a job that will help pay for their new house. The way the National Alliance to End Homelessness is giving money through donations that people have giving them. They use the donations to provided the homeless with a new house and therapy.

Mission: The thought of being homeless is terrible. Being homeless is something nobody wishes to face. The homeless must be extremely strong and powerful to put up with the downsides of actually being homeless. There are many men, women and even children out there suffering, living on the streets.There are sadly around 750,000 to 950,000 homeless men, woman and children in the United States. 56% of those people live in shelters but 41% of the people live on the streets. Also, 59% of the people are single adults and 41% are in families. There are many reasons to the cause of becoming homeless like, losing your job which leads to losing your home. Drugs/Alcohol are the main prime causes for losing your home and being left on the streets. Sadly drugs and alcohol are a big problem for the homeless society. It is terrible how many homeless drug and alcohol abusers there are. in the United States.Nearly half of the homeless society abuses drugs and alcohol. Somewhere around 41.9%. For someone who gets hooked on or addicted to drugs and alcohol it is incredibly hard to become sober again especially without rehab. That is what our fundraiser is for. We want to help the homeless community rehabilitate there lives by taking the first step of becoming sober. Because if you are an addict, how can you afford to feed yourself when all of the money you get from people, goes straight to drugs and alcohol? It is very hard to get a job when all you want is drugs because you wont work as well as someone who doesn’t do drugs.So getting sober is the first step to getting your life back on track. By getting sober, it makes it easier for the homeless to get a job. There are many things people can do to help this cause. Just a little amount of help has a huge impact on many people. Any donations that anyone gives will be put straight towards helping the homeless get off drugs and get there lives back together. By getting them off drugs they will be able to get jobs and be able to afford a house to live in.
