Turning Interest Into Action

The Mission of the Housing Action Coalition is to educate, advocate, and raise awareness while providing a cohesive coordinated response to homelessness and the issues related to it.




Most facing homelessness never thought they would be in situation they are in. There are many different factors leading to loss of shelter and the understanding of our community and what we can do to help is the first step toward empowering individuals and families in their journey to regaining stability.
