We are dedicated to changing the conversation around homelessness. Our goal is to inspire action by giving the current epidemic of mass homelessness the attention it deserves. Here are a few things we think you should know:
1. Mass homelessness is not inevitable. It has a beginning, causes, and a solution.
2. The homeless face undue stigma. They are not a separate class; they are experiencing a housing crisis.
3. Housing is a basic human right.
Chapel Hill lags behind the rest of the state in our homelessness system.
We are the only county in which rates of homelessness have gone up in the last eight years.
Our hope is that if people know to treat homelessness like the crisis it is, we can reverse this trend.
