Michigan's Campaign to End Homelessness

While 2020 brought many challenges to everyone, those experiencing homelessness navigated the COVID-19 pandemic without the sense of home we all need. Having a safe and affordable place to call home is more than having somewhere to rest your head, it’s about stability, dignity and opportunity. For the Michiganders who experienced homelessness in 2020, we must and will do better. [For the Lt. Governor's complete letter, please see the 2020 Annual Report...]

Michigan's Campaign

Because the problem is so devastating, so large, and so challenging, our response must be both compassionate and bold. That’s why, in 2006, Michigan announced a statewide plan to end homelessness. It began with a community plan to organize and deliver housing and services to meet the specific needs of people who are homeless as they move to stable housing and maximum self-sufficiency.

Are You Homeless?

Individual housing needs assessments and service referrals are done through a single, centralized Housing Assessment and Resource Agency (HARA) in every community. Each HARA has a Housing Resource Specialist that works with individuals to gather information to determine both need and eligibility and then connect them to services, as appropriate.
