Form an American Homeless Society Chapter for your State or Area


The American Homeless Society (AHS) was established, in 1987, and declared war on involuntary homelessness in the United States of America, in 1996. To accomplish its mission, AHS establishes Chapters throughout the country, to organize and advocate for homeless rights, at all levels of government and society.

Pursuant to its Four Association Precepts (below), the American Homeless Society and its Chapters may not formally coalesce with any other organization or group of organizations, nor "incorporate" under the laws of any state or territory of the United States. Our strength is in our independence, autonomy and freedom, to work against involuntary homelessness, and its root causes wherever they raise their ugly heads, to the fullest extent of the law.

AHS Associates organize and advocate for homeless rights, at school, work and rallies; in city council and corporate board meetings; in churches, synagogues and mosques; at county courthouses, state capitols, and federal hearings; and wherever it is necessary and appropriate, to stand up for homeless rights.

No AHS Associate or Chapter may solicit funding or financial contributions, for or on behalf of the National Association, nor for any Chapter, Founder, Director, Lone Eagle or other Associate.* AHS Associates and Chapters may encourage funding and financial contributions, to other charities, such as homeless shelters and food banks, however.

*Exception: AHS Chapters under campus and other institutional charters may generate income for their homeless projects in accordance with the rules and regulations of those institutions.

All AHS Associates are volunteers, at all times, while acting for or on behalf of an AHS Chapter and(or) the National Association. Stand and be counted, in the growing movement of men, women and children fighting for homeless rights throughout the nation.

If you have read, understand and agree to abide by the Four Association Precepts, below, you may become an AHS Associate, Authorized Representative, Lone Eagle and(or) Chapter Founder and Director of an American Homeless Chapter for your campus, city, county, state, island or other U.S. territory via e-mail now.
