Vote for Homes Coalition

Get involved with the Vote for Homes! Coalition, a nonpartisan advocacy effort focused on housing, jobs, and services.
Since 1999, Vote for Homes! has registered more than 16,000 voters and mobilized thousands to vote. You can join us!
In this challenging budget year, please join us in sending a clear message to our elected officials in Harrisburg: we need to reinvest in housing, schools, health care, and human services. Quality services save costs over the long term, create jobs, and attract families, visitors, and businesses to Pennsylvania.  Encourage your elected officials to raise needed revenue, fund the PA Housing Trust Fund, and expand Medicaid.

Next Steps After Solutions Not Citations Campaign...

The Solutions Not Citations campaign was a success, however our work to protect the rights of those who are homeless and living on the streets is not yet finished. We believe that the City must remain vigilant in ensuring the dignity and rights of homeless Philadelphians are not infringed upon, especially by the police officers charged with protecting us all.
