On behalf of the National Alliance to End Homelessness, I would like to express our deepest gratitude to you, our supporters and donors.  In this tough economic climate, the Alliance has been able to defy the odds and carry out our program goals without cutting back.  That is because we have the support of such wonderful and committed donors.  Thank you.

Here at the Alliance, we know that budgets are tight and there are many, many charities doing great work.  As a donor, you have a multitude of choices for where to invest your money. Thank you for choosing the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

Your donation makes a difference.  Your donation helps people like Robin and her three young children who were evicted from their apartment when Robyn lost her job and could no longer pay the rent.  Robin’s family had to turn to a shelter in Washington, DC for a place to sleep.

After spending months in shelter, Robyn’s family was able to move into their own apartment.  That’s because she had the help of a local nonprofit organization that assigned Robyn a case manager to help her get back on her feet.  Once Robyn got her family settled in a stable place to live, she found a job as a part-time line cook at a local university. Her excellence on the job led to a promotion to full-time cook.

Robyn loves her job and she also loves that it allows her to pay the rent and support her family.  She is thankful for the help she received when times were hard.  The help she received was critical to finding a solution to their homelessness – a home and a job.

The Alliance works with organizations across the country to help families and individuals just like Robyn.  Jointly, we are making it possible to prevent and end homelessness in America.  Thank you again for supporting this work. Your commitment to our shared goal of ending homelessness is inspiring.
