The Coalition for Supportive Housing is an advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless men, women and children. We believe that affordable housing, sufficient food and the chance to work for a living wage are fundamental rights in our civilized society.
The Coalition’s effectiveness derives from our unique role as both an advocacy and direct service organization. Our programs, shelter monitoring, and grassroots organizing enable us to meet homeless people where they are – giving voice and hope to the most marginalized among us. Our advocacy is informed by the very real daily struggles of our homeless neighbors and seeks practical, humane, and cost-effective long-term solutions that are proven to work. Because every person deserves a home.
What We Do
The Coalition for Supportive Housing was developed and implemented humane, cost-effective strategies to end mass homelessness in North and South Carolina. Our model programs represent solutions that can dramatically reduce the homeless population and prevent homelessness among those most at risk.
Every day, our programs help men, women and children survive immediate crises and put them on the path to long-term stability. We understand and witness firsthand the challenges they face and shape our services to best meet their needs, providing emergency food and clothing, eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training and special programs for homeless youth.
The Coalition is a vocal and invaluable city and statewide resource for homeless people, at-risk populations, other advocates and service providers, policymakers, and the public at large. We work hard to earn the reputation as the most credible source of information on homelessness, its causes, and solutions.
