Take Action

Tell your U.S. Senator and U.S. Representatives that all homeless children and youth need help – no matter where they happen to be staying!

Enter your zip code below to send a message to your Senators and Representative urging them to become a co-sponsor of the Homeless Children and Youth Act. Please be sure to edit the sample letter on the page to explain why YOU support this bill, including any local, or state information – especially examples of families or youth with whom you have worked who would benefit from this legislation. If you are writing on behalf of an agency, please describe what your program or agency does. The more you personalize the letter, the better.

Here are other important ways you can help:

1. Forward this link to state and local partners, organizations serving homeless children and youth in your community, and friends and family.
2. Add a link to www.helphomelesskidsnow.org to your Facebook page.
3. Tweet your support for the Homeless Children and Youth Act with a link to our Take Action page.
