National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week

November 10 - 18, 2018

During the week before Thanksgiving, people around the country take some time to observe National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week, volunteering and working toward the goal of eliminating both in our communities.

For 2018, the week is focused on local and national laws that can work to change the occurrences of homelessness and hunger, at community and nationwide levels.


Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County

For more than 30 years, the Homeless Coalition has been the voice for those who are experiencing homelessness, advocating for their rights and a place they can call home. The Coalition has been a strong leader within the community by recommending policy changes to improve services. It also identifies strategies that can produce results, and gets the message out to the community for prompt action.
The Homeless Coalition’s Policy and Legislative Committee brings issues forward and offers solutions. The Coalition constantly monitors national, state and local legislation and news to distribute information through the Coalition’s communication network including this website and social media outlets.
