The National Policy and Advocacy Council on Homelessness is a grass roots anti-poverty organization. Our mission is to ensure that national homelessness policy accurately reflects the needs and experiences of local communities.

The National Policy and Advocacy Council on Homelessness (NPACH) is a national grassroots organization whose primary concern is to ensure that national homelessness policy accurately reflects the needs of local communities. NPACH is unique in its grassroots approach and global view, connecting community-based organizations, schools, and the public to national policy through our advocacy and education initiatives.

NPACH works to accomplish its mission through:
  • Education. By informing the public and policymakers on the causes and consequences of homelessness, we can create the will to bring about real change.

  • Grassroots organizing and advocacy. By uniting a broad base of antipoverty organizations, we can form a powerful coalition that is heard across America.

  • Research. Our staff joins with local, state, and national organizations to study the impact of federal legislation and policy on local communities.

  • Technical assistance. NPACH is dedicated to helping local groups and service providers as they seek to access funding for their programs. We also assist advocacy groups in the process of building strong local coalitions which can better serve their homeless populations.
