The Council for the Homeless
The Council for the Homeless directs the Coalition of Service Providers for the Homeless, a consortium of nonprofit agencies, businesses, community groups, and government agencies, as well as homeless and formerly homeless people. The group identifies critical gaps in service, prioritizes needs and plans for solutions. As an extension of this group’s work, the Council has produced successful annual HUD Continuum of Care grants every year since 1994.
