2019 Homelessness Awareness Day

During the Texas legislative session year (every odd year), THN hosts Homelessness Awareness Day (HAD) at the Capitol. Advocates from around the state meet at the Capitol for a briefing on legislative priorities, followed by meetings with their legislators. This is an opportunity to discuss our public policy priorities and update our senators and representatives on housing and homeless services in their community.
