Watch a post-Legislative update to learn about our efforts

“Over the years advocacy around policy and public investment to address homelessness and to address the needs of people living with serious and persistent behavioral health conditions has been central to our work,” says DESC Deputy Director for Strategy Nicole Macri. “At the core, DESC is a service organization serving direct client need, but from our very founding–we were founded due to the advocacy of community members and that legacy of advocacy and trying to actually help be a central agent in organizing around advocacy–has been a key part of our organizational identity.”
