10th February
written by Catherine An

This week, there were several news articles about homelessness – a handful that even referenced the National Alliance to End Homelessness specifically (like this Scientific American piece about chronic homelessness, this editorial about the National Conference on Ending Family and Youth Homelessness from San Jose Inside, and this story about the Alliance’s effort to end homelessness in the state of Virginia from the Richmond Times Dispatch) – but I thought it would be fun to highlight some great tweets and Facebook posts from the National Conference on Ending Family and Youth Homelessness taking place right now in Los Angeles, CA!

To see these posts on your own accounts, make sure to follow the Alliance on both Facebook and Twitter.
