Mission: “One Roof’s mission is to equip and empower our community to prevent and end homelessness through advocacy, education and coordination of services.”
One Roof is the clearing house and center of coordination for the homeless Continuum of Care system of central Alabama. As a continuum organization, One Roof coordinates services provided by homeless agencies regionally. With PromisSE, One Roof member agencies are stronger, as they can collaborate with each other for services and projects and lean on each other for support. Member agencies are also more efficient because the continuum helps prevent duplicate services and helps agencies identify and fill gaps in services. One Roof advocates for people experiencing homelessness by providing internal and external education and working on a national level to bring HUD supportive housing dollars to the region. One Roof also provides our homeless CoC with a dedicated SOAR social worker. While One Roof itself is not a shelter and we do not provide regular direct services to the homeless, in just the past five years, One Roof has secured over $40 million for homeless services in the region. We also provide information and referrals daily for people in housing crisis. One Roof is a 501(c)(3) organization whose members include municipal leaders, faith-based and grassroots organizations, local hospitals, citizens, service providers, and both homeless and formerly homeless individuals.
