We Believe in Housing Not Handcuffs

Mar 22, 2017

StandUp For Kids proudly endorses the Housing Not Handcuffs campaign. 

“In order to end the crisis of homelessness, the criminalization of homelessness must end immediately. All persons experiencing homelessness should instead have access to affordable housing, education, health care, employment, income, and other opportunities and services that allow all to live with dignity. These are the only solutions to the crisis of homelessness from a moral, legal, fiscal, and policy perspective.”
The National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty and over 100 organizations – including StandUp For Kids –  have helped launched the Housing Not Handcuffs Campaign to call for the end to the criminalization of homelessness and a major national shift toward effective housing policies. Please join or endorse the campaign now!
