Oak Foundation Homeless Program

Oak Foundation seeks to combat homelessness

The Oak Foundation is committing its resources to address issues that have a major impact on the lives of the disadvantaged.  A primary focus is in preventing homelessness through sustained solutions that improve the economic and social well-being of the most disadvantaged youth and adults.

The program has three focus areas: economic self-sufficiency (the program supports projects that equip people who have experienced homelessness, or who are at risk of doing so, with the economic and social skills that will lead to greater long-term economic independence), Increasing the Supply of Affordable Housing (this funding provides seed money as a catalyst), and Homeless Prevention (this program aims to prevent homelessness among identified vulnerable groups and in certain regional hot spots).

The Oak Foundation favors projects that have a sophisticated understanding of specific needs and the intrinsic structure to effectively address them. For more information, click here.
