As Congress makes budget and policy decisions, HEAR US wants to make sure the needs and priorities of families, children, and youth experiencing homelessness are protected.

This is not a constituency with a powerful lobby, unless you count US. So we need to put extra effort into this cause! 

HEAR US will depend on partners like SchoolHouse Connection for advocacy alert info. And we depend on you to get word out and urge action!
