Who We Are and What We Do

The Coalition of Homeless Services Providers, also known as the Homeless Coalition, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that serves as Monterey and San Benito County’s Continuum of Care (CoC) lead.

In the most basic terms, we coordinate services among partner agencies, ensure our community is following federal guidelines, report homeless statistics to federal and state governments, and seek funding for the homeless services community.

We are also the keepers of the Master List; the largest collection of information on homeless persons in our CoC, who are actively seeking homeless housing services. To learn more about the Master List and CARS, click here.

The Homeless Coalition consists of only four full-time staff persons and two interns.
