WRAP was created to expose and eliminate the root causes of civil and human rights abuses of people experiencing poverty and homelessness in our communities. We are demanding our rights and fighting like hell for all people (housed & unhoused) to be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. In the past 38 years since the advent of contemporary homelessness, unhoused people have been subjected to an endless merry-go-round of target sub-populations, competitive community plans, and policy flavors. Rather than addressing the root cause of homelessness, the decimation of federal public housing, these policies are aimed at fixing "broken individuals." Clearly, our governments are not choosing real solutions to homelessness– human rights, livable incomes, healthcare, jobs, or a reinstatement of federal affordable housing funding.
