Join Us! Coalition membership is open to organizations and individuals who commit Membership is open to organizations that commit to our mission to mobilize our community to challenge systematic causes of homelessness and advocate for housing justice. We strive to work collaboratively to ensure safety and survival for people while they are homeless, and to end the crisis of homelessness in our region.
Join us at our monthly meetings, including General Membership meetings on the third Thursday of each month in Columbia City (online as of March 2020 until further notice due to COVID-19) and the South King County Forum on Homelessness on the first Wednesday or each month in Kent.

I think that the Coalition serves a crucial (and complex) function. . . . It holds a unique position where
a lot of different arms of municipal, state, and local government, community organizations, NGOs,
advocacy groups, and interested individuals all cross paths and pool intentions.”
