Homeless Alliance of Western New York wants YOU to become a member!
For more than 17 years, our organization has advanced community collaboration and leveraged data intelligence to identify gaps in housing services that inform future funding decisions. With your generous support in 2022, HAWNY was able to facilitate $16.5 million in federal funding for homelessness services. This funding remains as the largest funding source in the region targeting people experiencing homelessness and providing vital services and housing to those who are most in need.
In 2023, we envision a system that is informative, transparent, and proactive, where a longer table is created to expand conversations and develop solutions. Our efforts to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring in Western New York will be spearheaded by supporting and uniting homeless programs, evaluating our systems in place, and expanding our reach farther into our communities. We believe the success of this is only possible if we all work together toward the goal of ending homelessness.
Your membership is important as it supports our efforts to overcome these challenges and to build on these opportunities. We hope you will join and support HAWNY in 2023 by offering a fiscal contribution on behalf of your organization or as an individual.
Membership provides you or your agency with voting rights during the HAWNY monthly meetings. This gives your agency a voice in deciding the direction of the entire homelessness alleviation system. Attendance at the meetings is not mandatory, but it is highly desired (to ensure we always have quorum in policy decisions). Recent decisions include the implementation of coordinated entry, which assessment tools to adopt for coordinated entry, and board members. We value the input of direct-service providers. Without the cooperative spirit we have in Western New York, our community would not be so effective.
