While there are other “roundtable” meetings and collaborative processes that occur in the Treasure Valley, the Homeless Coalition’s primary distinction is its dedication to advocacy for persons experiencing homelessness.
While other groups focus on necessary compliance with federal regulations, funding applications, and systems planning, the Homeless Coalition was established to be a collective voice for homeless men, women, and children.
Homeless individuals and families are not statistics. Rather, people experiencing homelessness are just that: people. They are our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, friends, neighbors, and fellow citizens. We must never be conditioned to respond as if that were not the case.
