17 out of every 10,000 people in the US were experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2019. Early reports on the numbers for 2020 are pointing to a worsening crisis in our towns and cities. In our home state of California, we have seen it firsthand – but right now those facing the most severe challenges mainly reside in major cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, San Jose, Seattle, Oakland, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Phoenix.
Our mission is simple – we want to bring the power of our staff, customers & suppliers to work hand in glove with homeless service systems across the US to help provide the necessary resources to not only meet the current needs of those facing homelessness but their future needs too.
Each month you are subscribed to Teebag & Co we take a portion of our profits and invest them into communities just like yours to provide tangible and long-term help to those in need. Food, clothing and shelter are a given, but we want to provide that person in need with an opportunity to change their life forever.
We must believe that homelessness is a temporary condition that, when desired, can be overcome with personal healing, educational assistance, housing and employment. Our focus for 2021-2022 will be on those communities close to us in California where we can make the most impact more quickly. But we don't want to stop there. If you think you can make a real difference in your local community then we want to support you too, in any way we can, so please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell us how you want to help impact your community so we can try and support you as best we can.
Alone, we will make a difference – together we will make a change.
Let's do this!
Ben, Jeremy & the Teebag & Co Team.
