Who We Are

The Presbyterian Network to End Homelessness is a network that exists to help churches embrace a comprehensive approach to ending homelessness.

Effective Advocacy

How do you become a truly effective advocate for homeless people? Many resources are available to help you become a powerful advocate for justice.

Advocacy Guides





Is this not the fast that I choose:

to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin?

Isaiah 58:6-7

Come See Us at 

General Assembly!


The Presbyterian Network to End Homelessness will be at General Assembly in St. Louis from June 16th-23rd. Come share the  stories of your work to support those experiencing homelessness and connect with others!
