Homeless Initiatives

Goals

Build a list of larger companies helping the homeless, in order to seek out partnerships to create an initiative

Early Findings

  • Coalition for the Homeless has an extensive list of dozens of corporate sponsors, which can be found here, which includes AIG, American Eagle, Havas, ING, and New York Life Insurance.
  • Microsoft recently made a $500 million investment in addressing homelessness and housing issues in the Puget Sound region.
  • Covenant House also has a large list of corporate sponsors, including Aetna Foundation, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays, Deloitte Consulting, Fidelity Charitable Fund, Goldman Sachs, Johnson & Johnson, and JP Morgan Chase. A full list of companies can be found here.
  • Renova Energy is supporting the homeless in downtown Palm Springs by providing solar cell phone chargers to people living in Sunrise Park. However, while the initiative made local news, it was not listed on their website.
  • Darden Restaurants supports the homeless by partnering with food banks via their Harvest Program as an alternative to throwing out food.
  • Fashion company PVH is a corporate sponsor of the initiative Shoes for the Homeless.
  • Warner Music supports non-profit Center Point by sponsoring and organizing the Warner Wild Ride, which most recently raised £111,600 for the homeless.
