Thank you for visiting the website of the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry. Our mission is to reduce homelessness in Alachua County by developing and coordinating community-wide strategies to assist and empower homeless individuals and families. As a community, we believe we have the responsibility to ensure that everyone's basic needs are met and that people have the opportunity to live in a safe and sanitary environment.
The Coalition is a community-wide partnership of emergency shelter providers, local veterans service organizations, food and nutrition providers, public housing authorities, city and county government agencies, affordable housing providers, mental health service providers, local businesses, faith-based organizations, legal service providers, local and regional workforce and employment assistance providers, substance abuse treatment providers, medical care providers, law enforcement agencies, the Florida Department of Children and Families, grassroots organizations, citizen activists and homeless and formerly homeless individuals.
