What We Do
Ways to Make A Difference
Positive change through policy
FP4H advocates for affordable housing by organizing letter writing campaigns to our local, state and federal government. Most recently, FP4H testified in support of HB 1182, state legislation to fund home share programs by using existing document recording fees.
We prepare written and oral testimony for our members to testify before City of Vancouver and Clark County boards to advocate for affordable housing and support for addressing homelessness.
Winter Housing Option -WHO
Keeping people out of the cold
FP4H members support the Winter Hospitality Overflow by organizing churches and volunteers to house individuals experiencing homelessness during our severe winter weather episodes. Members help by preparing the rooms to be used overnight, welcoming individuals to come in out of the cold and spend the night, offering snacks, drinks, supplies and safety, security and warm clothing.
