Together we are changing lives, building a supportive community,
and preventing homelessness one person at a time.

At Homes On Wheels Alliance (HOWA), we stand alongside those navigating the challenges of housing instability, providing vital support to individuals who have been marginalized by circumstances beyond their control. When faced with the daunting choice between the streets, shelters, or a nomadic lifestyle, many have opted for the latter as a means of survival. With your support, we not only offer a path to safety and dignity but empower individuals to thrive and, in turn, make meaningful contributions to others in need.

Emergency Fund for Essentials: A Lifeline on the Road

Living a mobile lifestyle comes with its share of unforeseen challenges, from vehicle breakdowns to unexpected financial strains. Your contribution enables us to establish an Emergency Fund for Essentials, providing crucial support for necessities like food, vehicle repairs, and fuel. Together, we create a safety net that ensures those on the road can overcome obstacles and continue their journey with resilience.

Community Support: Building Connections, Breaking Isolation

We believe in the strength of the community as a powerful support system for individuals facing similar challenges. Our community-building programs aim to foster connections, breaking the chains of isolation and defeat. By creating a network where participants can share work opportunities, resources, and support, HOWA cultivates an environment where everyone can give back to others in meaningful ways.

Granting Solar-Powered Electrical Systems: Empowering Lives with Energy

In today’s world, electronic devices are essential for communication, work, and health. HOWA extends its support by granting solar panels and batteries to qualified applicants, ensuring they have the ability to charge electrical devices. This not only powers crucial medical equipment and refrigerates necessary medications but also allows grantees to maintain gainful employment by running the electronics needed for their work.

Your involvement with HOWA transcends charity; it becomes a catalyst for transformation. Join us in creating a future where everyone, regardless of their circumstances, can embark on a journey towards stability, resilience, and community. Together, we make a lasting impact, turning challenges into opportunities for growth and empowerment.
