Chicago Coalition for the Homeless IL

Since 1980, Chicago Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) has had a clear mission: We organize and advocate to prevent and end homelessness because we believe housing is a human right in a just society. CCH leads strategic campaigns, community outreach, and public policy initiatives that target the lack of affordable housing in metropolitan Chicago and Illinois. CCH also presses for access to job training, career path jobs, and public schools. Our policy specialists, public interest attorneys, and community organizers work with people hurt by homelessness - mothers with children, unaccompanied youth, ex-offenders, prostitution survivors, and low-wage workers. Regular outreach to more than 30 shelters and street programs reaches more than 4,500 people a year.
