About the National Coalition for the Homeless

The National Coalition for the Homeless exists to help meet the immediate needs of those experiencing homelessness with the ultimate goal of putting an end to homelessness entirely. It is made up of activists, advocates, community leaders, faith leaders, and those who are currently experiencing homelessness or have experienced homelessness in the past. For more information, visit their website.

Because people experiencing homelessness are not on the street by choice but because they lack choices, criminal and civil punishment serves no constructive purpose.” – National Low Income Housing Coalition
  • “On any given night, there are approximately 643,067 people experiencing homelessness in America. 238,110 of those people are in families.” – Green Door
  • “In no state, metropolitan area, or county in the U.S. can a worker earning the federal or prevailing state or local minimum wage afford a modest two-bedroom rental home at fair market rent.” – Family Promise
