The Coalition was founded in 1986 and we’re one of the largest homeless service providers across the state of Colorado. From the beginning, CCH has always been an advocate for people experiencing homelessness and delivered comprehensive healthcare and housing for people wherever they are. When we have 10,000 people experiencing homelessness out on the streets across Colorado on any given night when there was a stay-at-home order those people didn’t have a home to go to; to stay safe. The response has been nothing short of miraculous in terms of the community coming together and the staff. There’s been at least a fifteen to twenty percent increase in people experiencing homelessness. The integration of housing and healthcare helps people find stability and begin to thrive and recover and move on from the experience of homelessness.
