PROJECT H3 VETS


A Community-Based HUD-VASH Initiative to End Chronic Homelessness Among Veterans

Our Current State: Ending Chronic Veteran Homelessness:

Ending homelessness is possible. It does not mean that no one will ever experience homelessness again. It means that when an individual or family has a housing crisis, our community has the systems and resources in place to immediately identify and support them in rapidly getting back into housing. Instances of homelessness should be rare, short-lived and non-recurring. 


 

While people experiencing homelessness absolutely struggle with poverty, domestic violence, chronic health conditions, mental health issues, and substance use, the primary reason that people become and remain homeless is their lack of safe and stable housing that they can afford.  Affordable housing is scarce in our communities.  The need far exceeds the supply, especially for those individuals and families with extremely low incomes.  

But there is a solution!  The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness and the Arizona Housing Alliance are advocating for the restoration of the state housing trust fund.  Created in 1988, the State Housing Trust Fund is a state resource devoted to addressing Arizona's housing needs.  Read more and endorse our efforts...







21ST ANNUAL STATEWIDE CONFERENCE ON ENDING HOMELESSNESS

Registration is now closed.


The workshops presented at the conference are intended to strengthen Arizona's capacity to end homelessness through strengthening provider organizations, practical applications of innovative as well as time-tested strategies.  On average, over 450 participants attend from the public and private sectors, as well as civil service employees, direct service employees, homeless school liaisons, volunteers, and homeless and formerly homeless Arizonans.
 
Continuing to be held at the Black Canyon Conference Center in Phoenix, the 2014 conference will be held on Tuesday, October 21st and Wednesday, October 22nd.  





Congressman Ed Pastor will be in attendance at the AZCEH Awards of Excellence Luncheon on Tuesday, October 21st, where we will honor his years of service with a special recognition. Congressman Pastor, the senior member of our state’s delegation, announced that he will retire at the end of this term. 

As a powerful  member of the House Appropriations Committee and the ranking member of its subcommittee of transportation, Pastor has played the leading role in creating affordable housing opportunities for all Arizonans. He’s fought for much-needed federal funding to go to HUD to fund homeless assistance grants and tenant and project-based rental assistance. Please join the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness as we thank Congressman Pastor for his tireless advocacy.  Register to attend the conference and awards luncheon...
   
   

Each election, low income and people experiencing homelessness vote at a lower rate than people with higher incomes, despite the fact that many policy decisions directly impact people who are economically disadvantaged. Currently, issues such as raising the minimum wage and funding certain social welfare and housing programs are being debated in the U.S. Congress and in communities around the country. In order for our government to truly represent the people, all citizens must be encouraged to vote-- especially those who are economically disadvantaged.  The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness has developed a voter guide to aide individuals in registering to vote.
