The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a leading voice on the issue of homelessness.

In 1983, a group of concerned leaders founded the National Citizens Committee for Food and Shelter to help meet the emergency needs of a growing population of homeless people across the country.

By 1987, it was clear that despite the Committee’s success, homelessness had taken root for a number of systematic reasons, and a “hot and a cot” were not going to end the problem. At that time, the organization became known as the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

The Alliance grew from a federation of more than 2,000 providers and public agencies to a current network of over 10,000 partners, making the Alliance the largest partnership dedicated to ending homelessness.

From 2003 to 2007, the Alliance expanded its organizational capacity considerably in the areas of policy, capacity building, education, and research. And the results of efforts by the Alliance and others have been palpable.

Today, with the help of federal leadership and local activism, the Alliance aims to continue on its journey to end homelessness once and for all.
