MDIMH changes lives through making sure people experiencing homelessness with companion animals never have to choose between housing and family.

– About  My Dog is My Home – 

MDIMH exists to keep individuals experiencing homelessness and their pets together. For these families, home means more than a roof over their heads. We understand the power of the human-animal connection, and we believe that all shelters in every city should open their doors to people and their pets.

Happy #FrequentlyAskedFriday! We are back this week to answer the question, “Does focusing on accessible shelter really help solve homelessness?”
.
As we all know, homelessness is a widespread issue with many root causes and just as many unique solutions. For this reason, we believe there is no one way to “solve” homelessness, it instead requires collaboration along with many stakeholders including the government, nonprofits, independent advocates and community members.
.
At My Dog Is My Home we see that individuals have a better chance of obtaining permanent housing if they are given access to temporary shelter, resources, and support. Our focus is on creating a more equitable system by making services accommodating for a broader population of people, the populations we focus on are individuals and families with pets.
.
We feel if everyone has the same chance at accessing services, there is a better likelihood of more people being able to free themselves from the cycle of chronic homelessness. The barriers to shelter keep people where they are at, without adequate resources and without permanent homes. This is why we at My Dog Is My Home are dedicated to the expansion of access and the creation of spaces for families of all kinds.
.
We can not solve homelessness on our own, but we certainly can work to contribute towards the sustainable solutions to end our homelessness crisis with advocates like you on our side.
