Advocacy

We are committed to advocating with and on behalf of people experiencing homelessness. 


Health care and supportive services are essential to minimizing the suffering of our neighbors without homes. We need visionary—even revolutionary—change to make that happen.

So advocacy is core to the Health Care for the Homeless mission. Our advocates span staff, clients, partners, donors and volunteers, with the most powerful voice being that of those who know homelessness first-hand.

 

 

How do we advocate for policies that will prevent and end homelessness?


LOBBY DAY

Each and every year, we engage with lawmakers, partners and the larger community to advance our advocacy agenda on the local, state and national levels.

This Lobby Day, hundreds of staff members and clients came out to rally and attend dozens of lawmaker meetings. Check out some fun photos from Lobby Day 2018. 

STAFF AND CLIENT ADVOCATES IN ACTION

Advocacy at Health Care for the Homeless doesn't end with Lobby Day. Staff members and client advocates are testifying and meeting with lawmakers in Annapolis and City Hall weekly during the legislative session to advance our advocacy priorities. See what they were up to during this past legislative session.
