This is the full-service and premier partnership program of Rethinking Homelessness. This program focuses on helping your organization develop the essential leadership you will need for success and the kind of
cross-sector collective engagement you will need to actually change the landscape of homelessness in your region. Through this program, we will also help you strategize the type of cutting-edge advocacy campaign you will need to create momentum for your cause and the type of funding you will need to support a prolific housing program.
Through this program, we will also help you strategize the type of cutting-edge advocacy campaign you will need to create momentum for your cause and the type of funding you will need to support a prolific housing program.
We will begin by thoroughly assessing your problem, as well as the supportive and detracting factors that may impact your efforts. We will also meet with many of your community’s top leaders to help educate them and assess their potential involvement in a homelessness initiative. Then we will guide you every step of the way in the development and implementation of a plan that enables you to achieve goals that are based on our assessment. And employing the “best practices” that have enabled communities across America to dramatically reduce homelessness, we will partner with you to help you form and execute a strategy that produces visible results.
(Our Comprehensive Community Assessment includes our 2-Day Community Intensive.)
Through this comprehensive initiative, Rethinking Homelessness will work with you to:

Build an effective business council to help strengthen your homelessness initiative
Formulate a powerful and effective awareness campaign that will utilize traditional media, social media, and high-profile endorsements to create momentum for your cause and collaboration within your community
Integrate all levels of local government into the process of solving homelessness
Harness the power of the faith community to rally people around the moral aspects of your work
Inform public policy in a way that will make it possible for your region to effectively end homelessness
