Advocating for Change
We provide a voice for people experiencing street homelessness and the agencies that serve them in the global arena.
Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations has agreed on the Sustainable Development Goals as part a new sustainable development agenda that must finish the job and leave no one behind. You can see the 17 Sustainable Development Goals here.
The United Nations NGO Working Group to End Homelessness (WGEH), IGH, and the International Coalition to End Homelessness propose a renewed focus on measuring and ending street homelessness worldwide. Read more here.
Measuring and ending unsheltered homelessness
During Habitat III, IGH partnered with the National Alliance to End Homelessness and FEANTSA to host an event on measuring and ending unsheltered homelessness, the IGH Framework, and garnering public engagement and political will to tackle complex social problems.
IGH actively solicits and shares success stories about work toward ending homelessness that illustrate the ways in which homelessness is a solvable problem.
