Communities thrive when people have safe and stable housing. Unfortunately, homelessness and housing instability is a reality for far too many of us, particularly children, youth, and families of color. Systemic failings, inequitable access to services, and lack of coordination between the housing, education, and health systems contribute to this growing problem. That is why Building Changes works at the intersection of these systems, advancing racial equity and advocating for change, in service to people experiencing homelessness in Washington. We focus our experience and expertise at this unique level because it is where we see great need and where we can have greatest impact.
