According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s 2017 national point-in-time count, it is estimated that there are 553,742 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United States – including 184,661 parents and children. Those numbers are unacceptable to us and the organizations we are proud to call our partners.
In many of our communities, there is a critical need for affordable housing options. Having a safe and stable home environment is a key component of making sure all family members have the ability to succeed in life. Research shows housing-based solutions combined with the right supports can reduce homelessness.
We proudly support widespread efforts to combat homelessness in our communities. Valuable programs including homelessness prevention, housing stabilization, transitional housing, and permanent housing options improve the lives of families and position them for greater success.
We invite you to review our 2018 Homelessness Grantees.
We are proud to partner with nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to improving housing options for the families in the communities we call home.
Enterprise Community Partners (2016 Grantee)
According to Cuyahoga County’s point-in-time counts, 1,697 people experienced homelessness in 2016. In response to the all-time-high levels of long-term (chronic) homelessness in the city and county, a grant allowed Enterprise Community Partners to identify evidence-based methods to improve housing stability for families – and then take those ideas from concept to reality.
