Our Coalition is unique: We learn from and partner with homeless services and housing staff, advocates, and people living through homelessness. We listen when they tell us about gaps in services, barriers to access resources, and policies that make life harder or better for people without homes. On-the-ground knowledge shapes and powers our work. Read our End of Year letter to see this in action.

Join us at Coalition Membership Meetings third Thursday and South King County Forum on Homelessness first Wednesday.

Join us for our Monthly General Membership Meeting on July 21st from 9 -10:30am via Zoom.

Homeless Service Provider Study is OPEN!

Across Washington State, homeless & housing service providers disproportionately suffer from workplace stress and trauma. You can help develop recommendations to support homeless service providers who work in traumatizing environments, to better manage and address workplace stress and trauma.

*A December 2021 report from King County’s Department of Community and Human Services estimates that about 40,300 people experienced homelessness through the course of 2020. This number is an estimate based on several sources, and corresponds with the general understanding that three times as many people go through the crisis of homelessness as are counted during the point in time count. The Coalition on Homelessness coordinated the “One Night Count” of people without homes or shelter as a community assessment and organizing project from 1979 through January 2016. Download a pdf of our poster showing the most recent decade of data (January 2007 through January 2016) we gathered.
