END HOMELESSNESS - BACKGROUND INFO


Seventeen out of every 10,000 people in the United States were experiencing homelessness on a single night in January 2019 during HUD’s Annual Point-in-Time Count. These 567,715 people represent a cross-section of America. They are associated with every region of the country, family status, gender category, and racial/ethnic group. Far too many people in America sleep outside and in other locations not meant for human habitation. This group includes more than 200,000 people.

According to the CDC, some individuals are at higher risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19. They include older adults age 65 and over. However, people experiencing homelessness age faster than housed people. Research indicates they have physical conditions that mirror those of people 15-20 years older than them. On a single day, an estimated 202,623 single adults experiencing homelessness are over age 50, suggesting they may be uniquely vulnerable to becoming seriously ill during the pandemic crisis.

Hi Rep [Name],

Thanks for all the work you do on behalf of our state. I'm a constituent writing in support of a couple of bills related to homelessness under consideration in the House. I’m asking that you please support H.R.3772, to address root causes of homelessness, meet the needs of community members experiencing harms from homelessness, transition communities towards providing housing for all, end penalization of homelessness, and ensure full democratic participation and inclusion of persons experiencing homelessness, as well as H.R.2419, the Affordable Housing for Homeless Veterans Act of 2021.

Shelter is a basic necessity and a matter of human dignity. Please help ensure that all people in America have a safe place to sleep at night.
