Emergency shelters play a critical role in ending homelessness. The Emergency Shelter Learning Series is a collection of webinars and resources from the Alliance focused on explaining the philosophy and practice of effective emergency shelter.
In 2018, the Alliance formed a Racial Equality Network of local and state systems and program leaders and advocates to inspire more engagement about best practices, data collection, and action steps at the systems level. The Racial Equality Network has identified the following set of existing tools that you might find helpful as you get started analyzing and addressing racial disparities in your homelessness system.
The SYSTEM (Strengthening Your System to Energize Momentum) Series is designed to help communities more effectively end homelessness. Through Webinars, blogs post, fact sheets, and other resources, the SYSTEM Series provides tools that help communities identify areas where they can make the most meaningful improvements to their systems, execute on those improvements, and leverage their Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) application for the CoC Program competition.

The Alliance is excited to release the State of Homelessness 2019. This web-based annual report uses data to chart the nation’s progress towards ending homelessness. The information further informs policymaking as well as national discussions focused on improving awareness and solutions.
DEMOGRAPHIC DATA PROJECT
The Demographic Data Project compiles data analyzed from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) 2018 Point-in-Time Count to examine the rates of homelessness among different populations. This series works to promote equity, by examining data that illustrates different experiences of homelessness based on gender identity, race, and region.
