The People Concern believes no one should have to live on the street or in a violent household. Our staff, volunteers and those we serve work together to address the effects of homelessness, poverty, mental and physical illness, abuse and addiction. Our programs empower the most vulnerable among us to improve their quality of life – housed, healthy and safe – and become active participants in the community. We also work to educate the broader community and improve public policy.
Together, We Are Changing Lives
individuals experiencing homelessness were engaged by outreach teams who connected them to services, referrals and housing resources.
formerly homeless individuals received ongoing services in permanent supportive housing.
adults and children escaping unsafe homes were served through Sojourn domestic violence services.
