ADVOCACY



A small percentage of our efforts as a nonprofit involves advocacy work with city and state officials to promote a new model for the design standards of existing shelters, in the hope that these will be implemented across multiple shelters. We are involved in actively growing our advocacy network. Our coalition-building involves connecting with shelter operators, existing service-providers, human rights advocacy groups, and harm reduction advocacy groups. It also involves connecting with interdisciplinary design firms and construction companies that might be interested in philanthropic work with local shelters. Philanthropy might include funding redesign efforts, volunteering staff, or donating materials to local shelter design modification projects.
