Greetings!

The American Homeless Society (AHS) is an informal association of volunteer advocates fighting for homeless rights throughout the country. The National Association lends organizational support, to its Authorized Representatives, Chapters, Founders, Directors, Lone Eagles and other AHS Associates throughout the nation.

AHS invites all homeless advocates, in the United States and Outlying Areas, to represent the National Association on behalf of the homeless, in your city, county, state or other geographic area. Wherever you live, reside or travel, in the USA and Outlying Areas, you may be authorized, to organize and advocate for homeless rights on behalf of the American Homeless Society, as a Lone Eagle.

You may also establish an AHS Chapter, to initiate collective action for homeless rights, in your state or area. AHS Chapters may be established, to represent schools, colleges, universities, boroughs, cities, counties, states and islands, and to represent other geographic areas and institutions, within the United States and Outlying Areas lacking AHS representation.

Where AHS Chapters exist, Lone Eagles are authorized to represent the National Association, in collaboration with those Chapter Founders and Directors, with assistance from the National Founder, if necessary. Where no AHS Chapters exist, Lone Eagles are authorized to represent the National Association, solely, individually and directly.

Lone Eagles are not required, to organize or establish AHS Chapters. Chapter Founders, Directors and other AHS Associates may start as, or become Lone Eagles for the National Association, at any time.

Lone Eagles, Chapter Founders and Directors are authorized, to represent the National Association for life, unless or until they elect to resign, or are otherwise removed from the Authorized Representatives Roster, due to death, incapacity or malfeasance.

If the National Founder is deceased or becomes incapacitated, all AHS Chapter Founders, Directors, Lone Eagles and other Associates are encouraged, to carry on, in the established name, spirit, principles and precepts of the American Homeless Society.

All American Homeless Society Associates and Chapters must abide by the following Four Association Precepts:

Four Association Precepts

All American Homeless Society Chapters and Associates, including the National Director, Lone Eagles, Chapter Founders and Directors, must abide by the following Four Association Precepts:

  1. The American Homeless Society and its Chapters may not "incorporate" under the laws of the United States, or under the laws of any state, territory or jurisdiction therein;

  2. The American Homeless Society and its Chapters and Associates may not solicit, raise or collect funds, to compensate an Associate, and no AHS Associate may receive compensation for services rendered to or for the Association and any of its Chapters.

  3. AHS Chapters and individual Associates may not promote, encourage or participate in any unlawful, immoral or anti-homeless activity, in the name of, for or on behalf of an AHS Chapter or the National Association.

  4. The American Homeless Society and its Chapters may not formally join any other group, organization, alliance or coalition of organizations, although the National Association and its Chapters may work with other groups, and endorse, sponsor or otherwise support other causes related to homelessness, poverty and other forms of oppression.

Due to resignation, malfeasance or loss of contact, a Chapter Founder* may be removed from the above list, and his or her Chapter will be dissolved, unless the Chapter Founder appoints a Chapter Director, or a Chapter Director is elected by the Chapter Associates, to keep the Chapter active.

*TO CHAPTER FOUNDERS, DIRECTORS AND LONE EAGLES: Let AHS know, if you have a new e-mail address, or want to resign, as a Chapter Founder, Director, Lone Eagle, Authorized Representative and(or) AHS Associate.

Join America's war on homelessness, today...
