The Florida Coalition for the Homeless
(FCH) is a dynamic organization whose membership and Board of Directors
include homeless advocates, service providers, members of the faith-based community, formerly homeless persons, educators, attorneys, mental health professionals and many others statewide who are committed to putting an end to homelessness and improving the conditions of persons living without shelter.
The Florida Coalition for the Homeless strives to make homelessness one of the state’s priorities. We accomplish this through:
- Providing education on homelessness issues;
- Advocating for initiatives that help homeless people and against laws and ordinances that may harm them;
- Networking with advocates throughout Florida on federal, state and local issues;
- Promoting unification, involvement and leadership of local coalitions, service providers, homeless people, religious leaders, units of government and others in the development and implementation of a statewide agenda.
