Our Mission

The mission of the Florida Coalition for the Homeless is to work collaboratively to prevent and end homelessness in Florida.

The Issue

Homelessness is an international, national, and local issue that has plagued communities since man first began to live in houses. Until all people in the world have access to affordable housing, homelessness will remain a widespread societal problem that needs to be addressed. Florida has the 3rd largest homeless population in the U.S.

About Us

Since 1994, Florida Coalition for the Homeless (FCH) has distinguished itself as the state’s leading voice on homeless policy. Today, FCH continues to demonstrate an unwavering commitment to addressing homelessness in Florida by working with state and federal stakeholders to develop solution-driven practices.


FCH assists its members with best practices and technical assistance training to help them implement solutions to homelessness locally. In turn, members help their communities create lasting solutions for homeless and at-risk families, children, youth and individuals throughout Florida. FCH offers three membership types.
