Homelessness Can Take Many Forms

It can mean sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation, like a car or abandoned building or camp; but it also includes people living in motels or with another family member due to a lack of resources or alternative accommodations. 

In 2020, 565 people were experiencing homelessness in Polk County:


were veterans


were under 18 years old


have a substance abuse disorder

Our clients include families, veterans, mentally ill, disabled, youth aging out of foster care, and more. Homelessness can happen to anyone—it takes just one major setback to start a cycle that can end with help from our community. We can solve this problem with your support.
