Five Fundamentals Toolkit
A Challenge to Candidates for Public Office
The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, together with the National Coalition for the Homeless, the National AIDS Housing Coalition, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, the National Center on Family Homelessness, and the National Policy and Advocacy Council on Homelessness, is launching a campaign to ask candidates for all levels of public office to endorse the Five Fundamentals to Prevent and End Homelessness. The groups have developed a toolkit for state and local advocates, service providers, and all interested persons to use to educate candidates for local, state, or national office about the types of policies needed to address homelessness. Please note that the toolkit or pledge should not be used to endorse any particular candidate or party, but rather to educate potential policy makers about the causes of and solutions to homelessness.
