Formed in 1987, the Coalition on Homelessness aims to foster the active participation of homeless and low-income San Franciscans in the struggle for social and economic justice.
Through an integrated approach that combines outreach, peer support, leadership development, public education, advocacy and community organizing, the Coalition defends the human rights of homeless and low-income residents, while advocating for permanent solutions to homelessness--taking into account not only poverty's devastating effects, but also its root causes.
To participate, there are two work groups that meet every week which you can join:
Housing Justice - Tuesdays at 12:00p
Human Rights - Wednesdays at 12:30p
The COH also produces and distributes the Street Sheet, the longest running street newspaper which has raised millions of dollars directly for vendors.
