"Now is the time to challenge our Nation to aspire to end homelessness across all populations—including families, youth, children, and veterans.” – President Barack Obama

Advocates who address the issue of homelessness focus on a variety of topics related to homelessness while representing diverse populations, geography, and approaches. USICH has committed itself to be transparent in its work and have included the knowledge and engagement of advocates from across the country in the development of Opening Doors.
