One way to prevent even more homelessness is to increase funding for the Housing Voucher Program (Section 8) which assists low-income families with affordable housing. Congress will soon consider cuts, level-funding, or (hopefully) increases to this vital program.
Urge your federal legislators to increase funding to HUD's Housing Voucher Program.
Our country struggles to deal with homeless families now, with over 1.5 million children not knowing where they will sleep at night.
The least we can do is to make sure more low-income families can afford a place to live. The most effective and cost-efficient way to do that is through HUD's Housing Voucher (Section 8) program.
As you make critical budget decisions, I urge you to consider the often-forgotten families at the bottom of the economic ladder. They are desperate for any kind of assistance to keep them from becoming homeless. This program can make a huge difference. Please increase funding for Housing Vouchers.
