Statement of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Three images next to each other: the first is a smiling adult wearing blue, sitting behind a computer screen, the second is an adult seated in a black chair with their hands folded in their lap smiling at the camera. They have glasses and are wearing a gray shirt. The third is an adult seated diagonally at a conference table with a report in their left hand. In the other hand is a cup of coffee. They are wearing a blue top and smiling at the camera.

The Coalition for the Homeless values diversity, equity, and inclusion in every aspect of our work, including our internal operations and external activities to support our mission. We are committed to cultivating a culture of respect for the dignity and value of each individual and family, and we welcome all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, national origin, disability, household composition, housing status and/or belief system. These values are essential to our mission to assist and advocate for those who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes, champion equity in all public and private responses to homelessness, and help individuals and families from all backgrounds secure vital services, safe indoor shelter, and decent permanent homes of their own.
