The Coalition works to prevent and end homelessness through four programs:

  • Research
  • Project Management
  • System Capacity Building
  • Public Policy

The Coalition works to create the system in which area homeless service providers, government agencies, and other community partners can provide efficient and unduplicated services to the Houston area homeless community.

The largest project of the Coalition is serving as lead agency to the Houston/Harris County Continuum of Care (CoC). Other projects include: Homeless Court, the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), the annual Houston Homeless Count, and Community Voice Mail.

The Coalition also partners with the United Way 2-1-1 Help Line to provide information and referral services, both for homeless service providers and homeless individuals.
