An end to homelessness in Arizona.
AZCEH activities include its annual statewide conference; coordination of focused service initiatives such as Arizona StandDown for homeless veterans and Project H3: Home, Health, Hope for long term vulnerable homeless individuals and families, and Project H3 VETS for vulnerable homeless veterans; and providing education opportunities for service providers, policy makers and advocates working on behalf of men, women and children experiencing homelessness.
In the early 1990s, organizations seeking to end homelessness found that instead of struggling as individual entities, they could work together to share knowledge and attain greater funding for their efforts. The organization leaders created the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness to give a unified voice to the cause and amplify their impact on their respective communities. Since then, the organization has increased its presence at the state legislature, has become involved in the Continuum of Care planning process throughout the state, presents statewide trainings at an annual conference, and coordinates the advocacy efforts of the local communities.
Now in 2017, AZCEH will experience even greater growth and possibility once again. In April, the board voted to merge with the Arizona Housing Alliance, another strong housing advocacy voice in our state. We hope you will continue to help us in this mission by learning more about the issues surrounding homelessness and affordable housing.
