homeless in the
US every night
the family homelessness crisis is real
while every family’s circumstances are unique, the complications that result from family homelessness are all too similar: children pulled out of the school and community they are comfortable in, parents forced to relocate and lose touch with their professional network, reliable childcare becomes difficult to find. the stability that a family needs so they can find stable housing becomes harder and harder to come by.
the economic, social, and emotional consequences for families are far-reaching.
this is the problem that hope+door wants to solve.
financial emergency is often all it takes
for a family to be at risk of homelessness
for a family that rents, the risk of homelessness is often due to no fault of their own: an accident, a medical emergency, crime, a pandemic related job loss, the list goes on.
even the most responsible families experience unforeseen financial emergencies. when these emergencies happen and a family gets behind on rent, hope+door steps in to fill the gap. we’ve witnessed the devastating spiral of events that brings a family from an unexpected expense to losing their roof, and we believe it shouldn’t play out this way.
