We don’t mean to brag, but it’s been a pretty good news week.

Our new Community Snapshot was featured in a local paper! We’re celebrating the way that Fairfax-Falls Church, VA was able to turn around their rising homeless population numbers by implementing proven best practices.

Our president, Nan Roman wrote about the exciting international meeting we attended with homeless assistance leaders from different countries. The Alliance is proud to be part of a new international alliance to end homelessness – and we’ll keep you posted on the blog about the work that evolves from the partnership.

Congressman Alcee Hasting penned a thoughtful opinion about a congressional briefing on homeless children, youth, and families. The co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Homelessness rightly announces that homelessness is “a crisis we can no longer afford to ignore.”

Our good friends at Funders Together launched their nonprofit organization! Our congratulations to this great organization for this even greater feat. As we all know, the role of philanthropy is critical in our effort to end homelessness.

And finally, are you interested in health care reform? Lisa Stand, our resident health care expert, is blogging about the relationship between health care and homelessness – and her last post is especially good. Keep your eyes peeled for more great information about health care reform and ending chronic homelessness.

Have a great weekend!
