Human Services Initiatives



The cycles of poverty and homelessness can seem intractable. Homelessness attenuates access to food, health, and work; this limited availability in turn hinders access to long-term housing. Recognizing the complexity and dependencies of the problem, the Fund focuses on projects that promise sustainable self-sufficiency—stabilized lives anchored by living-wage jobs.

Areas of support in this initiative include:
  • Stabilized housing 
  • Food security 
  • Education and/or job training and placement toward a living wage 
  • Mental health (specific to homeless individuals) 
We fund this work—as well as Education Initiatives and Healthcare & Medical Research Initiatives—in six geographic regions. Learn more about applying to the Fund.
