Widening the Lens of Possibility

This report reflects the intense work we’ve done to listen to our community, seek out best practices from around the country and critically examine our own potential to stimulate change.

As you read through the report, you’ll find a common thread that binds our work and the work of our grantee partners: a singular focus on poverty alleviation through low-barrier approaches to ending homelessness and increasing employment opportunities for the least fortunate in our city.

Housing

The experience of homelessness is traumatic and life-altering, particularly because permanent housing makes meeting essential needs possible, from basic health to safety and stable employment. 

The McGregor Fund supports grantee partners developing holistic approaches to challenges inherent to the homelessness experience. The NOAH Project (Networking, Organizing and Advocating for the Homeless) focuses on prevention, rapid re-housing, housing stability, and systemic solutions, including coordination with service providers in areas outside of homelessness.
