Homelessness

Tuck Sleep
Homelessness is an incredibly prevalent issue in the US with over 500,000 people going without shelter every night. This has devastating effects on public health, and the team at Tuck Sleep has created a portal to help increase awareness and help those affected by homelessness.

This portal contains a complete directory of all emergency shelters in the US, organized by state, with contact information (phone, web, address) as well as all of the services they offer, plus a curated compilation of national and online resources for those affected by homelessness looking for help. It also contains an overall study on homelessness in the US today.

Finding a solution to homelessness is not straightforward, but individuals and families experiencing homelessness can use the following resources to find the help they need.

 Homeless Gear

Homeless Gear is a Fort Collins-based nonprofit that provides a continuum of services to individuals and families who are homeless or—in some cases—at risk of becoming homeless:  supplies that help them survive in the short-term; connections to resources in the interim; and links to employment, housing, and self-sufficiency for the long-term.

 

They do more than distribute gear. They operate six programs that, collectively, help the people they serve to meet their basic needs, move forward, obtain employment, find housing, and regain self-sufficiency. They are also the Manager of the Murphy Center for Hope, a local resource center for people experiencing homelessness.
