The Coalition for the Homeless has been working with local shelters and other agencies in the Louisville area since 1986, when the community saw a need to better address the issues of homelessness. As an advocacy/education agency, The Coalition is able to build collaborations between key partners to establish programming that has a wide impact across Kentucky. While the shelters and other service providers must address daily crises, The Coalition is able to bring together groups of people to plan long-term initiatives such as our 10-year Blueprint to alleviate and end chronic homelessness and our Cost of Homelessness Study. We also directly assist people who are looking for information about a place to stay, or how to get housing, food, clothing, etc. We receive hundreds of calls from people needing help and numerous walk-ins from people living on the streets looking for blankets, clothing or some other type of assistance. The Coalition serves as a voice for disenfranchised individuals and for those who have been impacted by the recent economic downturn which has led to high rates of unemployment and foreclosure. This rising population needs to be heard at every level of government and in the business community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, creative, and constantly searching for unique programming to help the community.
