4. Spread the word.
Show your support for ending homelessness in Ada County by purchasing a Housing First pin ($10—see graphic and description below) and End Homelessness in Ada County T-shirt ($10). To order, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.The “HOUSING FIRST/END HOMELESSNESS” pin was designed to convey this simple message clearly in a beautiful, yet simple way. The colors (red, white and blue) symbolize America’s military veterans that are homeless. The “house” is also an upward turned “arrow”, an expression that we can do better, and must, if we are to end homelessness.
5. Talk to elected officials
Let elected officials know you’d like to see Housing First solutions. Demand an end to government measures to criminalize homelessness.
