A Call to Action!

MCAH invites all those concerned with and/or affected by homelessness to participate in the annual Homeless Awareness Week observance November 15-23, 2014.

In 2013 alone, there were more than 92,000 people without a home at some point in the state of Michigan.  More than half were families with children, and over 50% also first-time homeless. For Homeless Awareness Week to be successful, we must put ourselves to action by inspiring others to get further involved in fighting the battle against homelessness. By brainstorming, planning, and organizing amongst each other, we can get a bigger push in eradicating the disease that is homelessness. To help individuals, organizations, and communities take action, visit our HAW page to find a toolkit/manual: .
