Help Houston's Homeless by Providing Meaningful Change, Not Spare Change

Houstonians are compassionate – always ready to help someone in need. But sometimes helping can hurt. The many nonprofits working to solve homelessness have created a system called The Way Home, which provides permanent housing and supportive services for homeless individuals and families. The Way Home only works when homeless people and families access services.
If a person can manage their homelessness by panhandling, that is one more day that they will be homeless, rather than getting permanent help.
Faith Leaders, non-profits, and the business community are partnering with The Way Home to create Meaningful Change for homeless individuals rather than prolonging their homelessness with Spare Change.
You can help by providing information to tenants and in your buildings about the Meaningful Change program, and encouraging those interested to donate to The Way Home. Download design assets and the Meaningful Change style guide to find flyers, graphics, videos, social media posts, and more to use for promoting the program at your property.
