The Miami Coalition for the Homeless was organized in 1987 to promote community efforts preventing and ending homelessness in South Florida by establishing alliances with agencies and organizations. MCH is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of community leaders who have demonstrated a strong commitment to eliminating homelessness. The Coalition was instrumental in the creation of the Homeless Providers Forum, the Miami Supportive Housing Corporation, and is a founding member of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust. The Coalition has also funded several community prevention initiatives, and has sponsored numerous conferences and educational efforts that target issues related to homelessness.
Today, our work concentrates on advocacy, prevention, and informational services to enhance already existing community efforts and fill identifiable gaps.
