Housing and Homeless Coalition

The Housing and Homeless Coalition of Central New YorkExternal Icon (HHC) serves the City of Syracuse, the County of Onondaga, the City of Auburn, the County of Cayuga and the County of Oswego. The community coalition serves to address homelessness and housing vulnerability. The coalition is the organized body of informal networking and formal linkages between homeless services providers and other public and private human service providers that works with and for the homeless and formerly homeless or other interested consumers and stakeholders.

The coalition also provides a regular forum for ongoing dialogue which enables participants to enhance understanding, coordination and cooperation regarding the multi-faceted problems of homelessness and housing vulnerability.  The coalition assists participants in planning for future services through an outcome-oriented process that eliminates overlapping planning processes and unnecessary duplication of effort.

The mission of the HHC is to assess community needs and to develop a comprehensive community strategy to combat homelessness and housing vulnerability in our community.
