About the Auction
The Annual Hunger and Homelessness Auction was established in 1993 by Yale health professional students interested in raising community awareness of and alleviating the adversity caused by hunger and homelessness in the Greater New Haven area. Our mission is to educate the community on key social issues: poverty and food security to affordable housing, unemployment, health care equality, and the implications of substance abuse and mental illness.
The H&H auction seeks to promote and support local organizations with community-focused initiatives that address an unmet social need, both through funded programs as well as policy advocacy. We hope to inspire an enthusiasm for long-term community involvement among all Yale health professional students, faculty, and alumni.
Supporters of the 20th Annual H&H auction are:

- Yale Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS)
