The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness (AZCEH) provides leadership in statewide efforts to end homelessness through advocacy, education and coordination 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.


An end to homelessness in Arizona.


The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness was formed in the early 1990s after advocates realized that there was a need for a statewide membership based advocacy group to coordinate efforts around the state. 

After 6 years of operating as a committee, it was decided that a separate non-profit should be formed to carry on the mission of the group.  In 1998, the Arizona Coalition achieved 501(c)(3) status from the IRS, and the first Executive Director was hired.  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. 

The Coalition works to end the root causes of homelessness through a multi-level approach. 

Our work toward ending homelessness focuses on:

  • Public Policy Advocacy
    AZCEH works with local groups to monitor and respond to local, state, and federal policies and laws that affect homeless and near-homeless people.

  • Increasing Awareness
    AZCEH promotes knowledge and awareness about homelessness, its causes, and solutions.

  • Assisting the Community
    AZCEH provides assistance to local communities and agencies that are responding to homelessness. AZCEH offers workshops, training opportunities, as well as access to resources and information.

  • Training & Education 
    AZCEH sponsors the largest, and only statewide, annual conference on ending homelessness in Arizona and is building an ongoing training calendar.
