Providing Hope For The Underserved

Here at Coalition for the Homeless of Nassau County, we are driven to do our part in making the world a better place. Since 2006, we have taken part in a wide range of activities that empower individuals and communities. The Coalition brings together local agencies, organizations, and individuals who are dedicated to working to prevent homelessness and improve conditions for those experiencing homelessness.

Together, We Can Change Lives

The mission of the Coalition is to prevent homelessness in Nassau County and to coordinate with other organizations to help homeless persons receive the services they need. It is also the mission of the Coalition with partners to create, fund and maintain individual programs in furtherance of this objective. 

Throughout our lifespan we have been working toward new and innovative ways to ensure that the most vulnerable among us receive the services they need. We exist to ensure they can persevere.
