Colorado Coalition for the Homeless

Our Mission The mission of The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless is to work collaboratively toward the prevention of homelessness and the creation of lasting solutions for homeless and at-risk families, children and individuals throughout Colorado. The Coalition advocates for and provides a continuum of housing and a variety of services to improve the health, well-being, and stability of those it serves. Our History CCH was established in 1984 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. It was founded by a group of individuals with a will to take action on behalf of Colorado's homeless. They recognized the struggles of working people living in poverty. And they refused to tolerate the dangers faced by those people sleeping in their cars, in tents, or on the streets. More than 30 years later, many of the underlying social causes of homelessness persist, like poverty, shortages of affordable housing, and unattainable healthcare. The Coalition's integrated housing, healthcare, and supportive service programs have been highly effective at responding to these conditions over time. Our Philosophy of Service We believe all people have the right to adequate housing and healthcare. We work to remove the barriers that restrict access to these rights. Society benefits when adequate housing and healthcare are available to everyone. We create lasting solutions to homelessness by: 1. Honoring the inherent dignity of those we serve, affirming their capabilities, and fostering their hope that a better life is possible; 2. Building strong, caring communities through the integration of housing, healthcare, and supportive services; 3. Advocating for social equity and challenging the status quo on behalf of the individuals and families we serve; 4. Achieving excellence through continuous quality assurance, innovation, and professional development; and 5. Using resources judiciously and effectively.
