Rethinking Homelessness Community Florida Recommendations-2024  .png


With the adoption of HB 1365, leaders in Florida need to work together to address homelessness. Join us on May 29th at 1 PM for an exclusive briefing of Rethinking Homelessness's recommendations for Counties, Cities and Law Enforcement to help Florida implement the new law.


Rethinking Homelessness is one of the most successful homelessness initiatives in American history. Founded in 2013, the organization has worked with thousands of communities and leaders across Florida and America to address homelessness.

Using a combination of national webinars, advocacy campaigns, and coalition building, Rethinking Homelessness has engaged leaders nationwide to spearhead efforts increasing awareness, creating resources, and facilitating major policy & systems change to end homelessness.

His dedication to this work has made him one of the foremost experts alive on important issues like on poverty, education, homelessness, the opioid crisis, and now the mental health crisis impacting Gen Z and Millennials.


Bailey has personally led many of the largest and most successful initiatives in American history that have brought together and impacted those in need. In 2016, he developed Rethinking Homelessness, a pioneer in transforming and saving lives impacted by homelessness and poverty, followed in 2018 by Project Opioid, one of America’s leading advocacy groups working to solve the overdose crisis. This year, as the company relocates its headquarters to Miami, he is working to create Breaking Thru, a cutting-edge initiative targeting modern mental health solutions for Gen Z and Millennials struggling in society. 


Through Change Everything, Bailey has created one of the largest leadership collaborative networks in the United States, bringing together thousands of elected officials, business executives, philanthropists, tech innovators, faith leaders and passionate advocates from coast to coast helping them create impact at the local level.
