Everyone deserves a place to call home. But a severe shortage of affordable housing and a critical lack of services continues to result in alarming rates of homelessness around the country. Through a series of advocacy training forums around the country, CCUSA aims to increase awareness at the federal level around the homelessness crisis and to offer legislative solutions that can translate to the work of local and state governments.
