WHY WE DO IT
CCUSA is Committed to Eliminating Homelessness in America
11.8% of the U.S. population lives in poverty and struggles to afford necessities such as housing. Homelessness has increased by 3% for the third straight year. Only half of individuals have year-round beds. Current published statistics illustrate the continued need for our efforts.
