Public and Private, Better Together: NerdWallet’s Favorite Homelessness
It’s rare a day passes when we don’t encounter a homeless individual holding
a sign at a stoplight or perched on a sidewalk with no food or shelter. Some
pass judgment; others feel guilt or remorse. Some try to pass well-meaning
policy, but struggle to know what to do and how to do it. To address this,
homelessness coalitions and alliances draw on a wealth of expertise from
various regions and sectors to implement long-term solutions to end
homelessness. We honor these four coalitions for their emphasis on
collaboration, data and planning.
The Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness: For bringing together a community
Mercer County, New Jersey, has a plan. Using a coalition of private
enterprise, public organizations and community members, they’re tackling
homelessness on an individual level and a systemic one. They’re bringing
together federal, state and local dollars; non-governmental organizations’
expertise; and the practicality and experience of the private sector to
provide affordable housing and support for the mentally ill, those who
struggle with addiction and more. Their two signature program are Rapid
Rehousing, which quickly moves families into permanent housing, and Housing
First, which helps the chronically homeless by using housing as the catalyst
that turns lives around.
