Bring America Home Now

The Bring America Home Campaign launched in November and brought on staff in January. Joel Segal longtime congressional staff member was brought on to Direct the Campaign.  The campaign now has over 121 regional and national partners. Partners include NOW, LULAC, NAACP, and many others The Campaign will host an ecumenical Faith-Based Launch featuring Grammy Winning Vocalist John P. Kee among others.  

 In March, a Family and Children launch at Stetson University in Florida in June and will hold launches in 16 cities in the coming months.  The campaign policy team is currently analyzing all previous legislation aimed at ending homeless to package together legislation that results in the structural changes necessary to end homeless.

In addition to the amazing work of the campaign, NCH has been working to put an end to a growing number of encampment sweeps across the country.  NCH is fundamentally opposed to sweeps that have dotted the headlines lately, including the subway sweeps in New York and vigilante sweeps in southern California.  NCH is continuing its push to pass the  Build Back Better Plan and HUD appropriations.  In this period NCH proudly launched the LivedExperience Training Academy (LETA).  LETA is a curriculum designed by people with lived experience to assist individuals considering advocacy and board involvement.  The first cohort will be conducted in April and the plan is to do 12 training this year.  NCH has also expanded its TA work and is not assisting HUD with providing Lived Expertise in several communities.

Finally, NCH has started the process of opening its second field office which will be located in Los Angeles California considered the epicenter of homelessness in America.  The goal of the field offices is to strengthen local advocacy campaigns and mobilize people with Lived Experience to advocate on their own behalf to address issues directly affecting them in their communities
