Helping Others Make Everything Right (HOMER)

Our 501C3 nonprofit is hosting a four (4) day event and we have 51 days to advertise, plan, locate a venue, and host the event, all depending on donations and sponsors. We do not have the budget but we have the know how to bring about improvements/protections for the people living in low income housing and renters having low wages and deciding to live in high rent locations instead of displacement or homelessness

This event is very important because it addresses low income housing and section 8 voucher issues that are similar to the issues of market renters. For example: rent control, section 8 voucher termination, displacement and homelessness, emergency rental assistance, seniors/disabled renter issues and hopefully examining this in depth will help bring some resolution that will protect but also allow the economic goals of the local government to be reach or put people first over money.

Many tasks must be completed by the end of the month and up to the event date. We will host virtual sessions to distribute tasks that can be done either virtual or in outreach, collect when completed and assignments for the event for all that can volunteer.

Please email us and provide your name, email address, phone #, location and days available and times for preparing a schedule starting the week of the October 18, 2021.

Thank you for your interest and time, you are appreciated!

Mission Statement

Helping Others Make Everything Right (HOMER) are organizers, advocates of people living in low income public housing and section 8 voucher/subsidized housing having the right to safe, decent, sanitary housing that continues to be affordable while on their very own journey to self-sufficiency and success.

Description

Helping Others Make Everything Right-HOMER are advocates of the people living in low income HUD housing having the same right to safe, decent, sanitary housing as you and I that continues to be affordable while on their journey to self sufficiency and success. HOMER provides educational and social services that helps families maintain affordable housing and understand that they have rights and responsibilities. HOMER encourages residents to get involved in their communities to help increase opportunities. HOMER implements activities and programs based on the needs of the people. Most of our services are geared toward helping others make better choices and decisions by providing guidance, resources and referrals. HOMER's top priority is to advocate for true affordable housing, help engage residents to become active law abiding citizens and gain access to the resources toward being better parents, becoming employed, building better relationships, volunteering, becoming educated and learning how to deal with and communicate conflicts, issues, and ideas to the people that make the final decisions. Also, helping others realize their talents and skills to create a learning environment in their homes and community. HOMER helps to change stereotypes of the critical persons who really have no idea of the everyday struggles people in housing face just to have access to a roof over their head. HOMER offers the journey to willing HUD Housing residents that want self sufficiency and success as it is envisioned.
