VISION

An end to homelessness in Arizona.

MISSION

The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness (AZCEH) provides leadership in statewide efforts to end homelessness through advocacyeducation and 
collaboration with local communities and initiatives. 

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.

HISTORY

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. 

To end homelessness in Arizona we work to: 

  • ADVOCATE
    Public Policy Advocacy & Increasing Awareness
    AZCEH promotes knowledge and awareness about homelessness, its causes, and its solutions by working with local groups to monitor and respond to local, state, and federal policies and laws that affect those experiencing homelessness and housing instability.

  • EDUCATE
    Creating a Highly-Trained Workforce
    AZCEH sponsors the largest, and only statewide, annual conference on ending homelessness in Arizona and is building an ongoing training calendar in an effort to contribute to a highly-trained workforce equipped with best practices in preventing and ending homelessness.

  • COLLABORATE
    Assisting the Community 
    AZCEH provides assistance to local communities and agencies that are responding to homelessness by offering technical assistance as well as access to a wide variety resources, information, and connections.
Because every Arizonan deserves a safe place to call home.
