Housing advocacy in Arizona is now twice as strong as the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness and the Arizona Housing Alliance form the ARIZONA HOUSING COALITION
Newly merged board and staff of the Arizona Housing Coalition brings together top leaders in the fight to end homelessness and work toward affordable housing solutions.
Effective July 1, 2017, the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness (AZCEH) and the Arizona Housing Alliance will be known as the Arizona Housing Coalition.In April, after nearly two years of exploratory work and preparation, the board of directors of both organizations voted to create the Arizona Housing Coalition in order to have a greater impact on policy decisions and resources for housing and homelessness, and better position ourselves to serve our over 200 organizational members. The ARIZONA HOUSING COALITION will be a collaborative association that leads in the efforts to end homelessness and provide safe, affordable homes for all Arizonans.
With this merger will come increased collective impact as the Arizona Housing Coalition is now better positioned to meet affordable housing expansion goals and to end homelessness through a stronger advocacy voice. A majority of the programming of each agency will remain in place and be improved upon. As will major existing programming ranging from the annual homeless conference and healthy communities conference, to the Maricopa County StandDown and other statewide StandDowns and veteran resource fairs.
