OUR LATEST GRANTEE STORY

Collaboration makes for powerful change

Crisis, a UK-based homelessness organisation, led a campaign to change the Homeless Persons Act, which prioritised families in need over single people in need.  On the other side of the Atlantic at around the same time, the Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania built a campaign to establish ongoing funding for the State Housing Trust Fund - which is a designated form of revenue for affordable housing.

The efforts of both of these organisations culminated in victory in 2017 the Homeless Persons Act was amended to reflect the wellbeing of single homeless people as well as families, and legislation was passed in 2015 in the state of Pennsylvania that supported affordable housing initiatives, with an initial funding of USD 12.5 million made available in 2017. These enormous victories can be directly attributed to the efforts of Crisis and the Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania.

 

Their work demonstrates how necessary the work of our partners is. We are proud of their success and congratulate them. Read on to find out more about how they achieved these remarkable goals.
