Geographic areas served: Chicago, Illinois

Mission:
Chicago Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) organizes

and advocates to prevent and end homelessness based on our belief that housing is a human right in a just society.
Results:
• CCH is the only organization in Chicago to run regular outreach at a variety of emergency shelters, transitional housing, SRO and street programs – 30 across the city each month, reaching more than 3,500 people per year.

• CCH is the only non-profit in Illinois crafting public policies that curb – and one day, can end – homelessness that hits low- and moderate-income families. We train and empower homeless people to advocate on all these issues.

• Ours is the only law office in Illinois dedicated solely to serving homeless people, with focus on children and teens turned away by public schools or denied school services.  A youth attorney reaches out to unaccompanied youth living on their own, without family.
