Mike Nichols is the president & CEO of Coalition for the Homeless. They've been helping homeless people get tested and treated for COVID and together with local non-profits and local governments, they've raised $65 dollars to permanently house 5000 individuals. Most of it is our federal tax dollars coming back to our area and working to help our neighbors. They are successfully "diverting" homeless people out of poverty by identifying and overcome their financial and healthcare problems. 85% of their clients are successful and exit the program – meaning they have a home and they're supporting themselves.
Mike illustrates what a powerful investment this is and the programs are being copied and other cities are fallowing in Houston's footsteps. Go to www.HomelessHouston.org and donate to this worthy cause or better yet: volunteer!
