We are pleased to announce that the pilot year of our Co-Sheltering Collaborative was launched on July 30, 2018. To promote an understanding that accommodating human-animal families in homeless services is both necessary and possible, the Co-Sheltering Collaborative - a national community of homeless service providers and government organizations who are actively working on the implementation of co-sheltering - has been developed to share expertise and showcase examples of innovative programs that address integrated human and animal sheltering needs.
In order to foster a paradigm shift towards equitable access to shelter and housing for people
experiencing homelessness with animals, the collaborative provides members with an opportunity to engage in dialogue, improve co-sheltering methods, and create a roadmap for making co-sheltering a part of standard practice.
