Serving Those Who Serve The Homeless
The Coalition Has Moved! 

As many of you may know, on February 26 the Coalition for the Homeless began the process of moving offices and is finally in its new space. The Coalition is no longer located on Jefferson Street and has moved to the St. Joseph Professional Building at 2000 Crawford Street.

The new mailing address for the Coalition for the Homeless is 2000 Crawford Street, Suite 700, Houston, TX 77002. The Coalition is currently located on the 9th floor while Suite 700 is under construction. Parking information will be sent to anyone attending meetings at our offices.

If you have any questions, visit our website to get in touch with any of our staff members. We appreciate your patience during our move!

The Proof is in the Numbers...

The Coalition for the Homeless' mission is to lead in the advocacy, coordination, and development of community strategies to prevent and end homelessness. We do this through four programs: Research, Project Management, System Capacity Building, and Public Education.
