Marginalized People Needing Housing

CLUE SB advocates for the welfare of individuals and families living on the streets, in vehicles, and in transitional housing. CLUE networks faith communities with the Rental Housing Roundtable to protect and encourage a diverse, inclusive and representative community of very-low to moderate income renters and the development of healthy and vital communities.

Current Campaigns

We support the Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness and Built for Zero to end veteran and chronic homelessness.

We participate in the Point In Time Count, an unduplicated count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families across the United States.

We support increased funding for:

  • Milpas Outreach Project
  • WINGS and their support for newly housed. CLUE SB encourages faith communities to support those newly housed by organizing faith communities to supply needs.
