Voter Registration is Essential. Can You Help?

Mobilizing the vote in 2020 is a critical part of our work to make sure that our community is heard at the polls and beyond. In addition to the online voter registration form below, we have assembled the tools below to support that effort. 

Help the Vote for Homes Coalition register voters as volunteer or as part of your job with a Philadelphia service organization. We have lots of creative and safe virtual options to reach community members. Training will be provided.

We must mobilize voters together for housing, jobs, and services. There are lots of ways to get involved this year!

Are you part of an organization? Join the Vote For Homes Coalition! Current Vote For Homes members, tell us how we can support your 2020 plan to get everyone in your program registered to vote.

When we vote, we elect leaders who make decisions on issues that affect our lives.

With so much going on related to the COVID crisis impacting people who are homeless or low-income, here are some policy and action resources we are following.

NOTE: The deadline for comments on the proprosed rule has passed but you can still send a message to Congress!

The Social Security Administration recently announced that it wants to change rules for people who get disability benefits, including SSI.

Many people would be required to prove continuing disability every two years. Through this change, Social Security expects to cut $2.6 billion in benefit payments.
