Unhoused Union

PROJECT

Support the unhoused community by sustaining camps, doing street outreach, and advocating for long term solutions to homelessness

About


We can be the solutions we need

Our strength lies not only in our skills, but through the clear and honest transparency in which we meet needs. last year, the city of St louis shut down all its unhoused services and our group realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, effectively, and permanently than ever before after over 200 days of keeping a massive population healthy and happy and covid free.

This fundraiser will support three areas of work:

1. Camp Support
The housing situation is so dire that people are forced to form camps for survival and safety. we provide support to any camps that pop up or in setting up new ones, especially in response to extreme heat or cold. We are currently sustaining 3 encampments throughout St. Louis. We need support to purchase supplies and employ our own people to do the labor of establishing and maintaining our winter encampment. 

2. Unhoused Outreach
We have begun building programs to address food insecurity, education inequality, housing shortages, and predatory outreach. Our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. We are the outreach it is our duty as this new union to not only meet needs central to us but to any and all who seek to organize help or have their stories told.

3. Food Donation Drop Off
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with the challenges of food waste and food insecurity. We coordinate drop offs and nutrition support for anyone who needs it. 

Donate today so we can invest in programs and systems that end poverty
