Merger of Two Coalitions of Homeless-serving Nonprofits

The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness provided leadership in statewide efforts to end homelessness through advocacy, education and coordination with local communities and initiatives.  The Arizona Housing Alliance was a statewide coalition that supports and advocates for quality housing that Arizonans can afford. The two organizations, with many similarities in their work and goals, merged to form the Arizona Housing Coalition in order to have a greater impact on policy decisions and resources for housing and homelessness.  A grant from the Lodestar Foundation helped to offset the expenses of the merger.
