What is the Coalition of Service Providers?

The Council for the Homeless chairs the Coalition of Service Providers for the Homeless (“The Coalition”). The Coalition serves as our Continuum of Care for homeless services. It is a countywide consortium of nonprofit agencies, businesses, community groups, faith communities, and government agencies, as well as homeless and formerly homeless people. It is a strategic planning body that coordinates homeless services in our area and serves as a mechanism for service providers within the CoC to apply jointly for funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. The group is led by the CoC Steering Committee.

The Coalition meets regularly to discuss community issues related to homelessness, best practices and opportunities for collaboration. Meetings are open to the public and new members may join any time. Coalition meetings are held the second Wednesday of “odd numbered months”, from 10am-noon at the YWCA Community Room: 3609 Main Street, Vancouver, WA.  Coalition work groups then meet during “even numbered months.”
