The Coalition is working alongside community partners to develop a county wide network of services to decrease instances of homelessness and reduce the financial strain to the communities.
The goal is to ensure that those in need receive services with dignity, to identify gaps in services, and advocate & educate on behalf of people with housing needs.
We offer an additional touchpoint and access to housing providers and their services. We offer applications for ORCCA housing programs as well as Coos Curry Housing Authority Section 8 and Housing Choice Voucher applications. Our staff are available to assist clients with navigation of social services and the completion and submission of applications.
The Curry Homeless Coalition contributed both financially and with subject matter expertise, in the development of the Curry Housing Study Action Plan. Our board members and Director are actively involved in bringing forward solutions to our housing crisis. The Director has worked with many community partners to contribute to community health assessments which inform our local community health improvement plan, working toward systems change, policy revision and organizational efforts to encourage development of low income, permanent supportive and low barrier, transitional housing options in Curry County. We are working to end homelessness through client-centered planning, collaborative partnerships and navigation of systems of care.
The Curry Homeless Coalition partners with SCBEC (South Coast Business Employment Corporation), and Worksource Oregon increasing access to employment support and Career Navigators providing support for clients seeking employment services, and with educational goals. Call 541-315-7210 for assistance in Curry County and to make an appointment with the career navigator.
Our staff and volunteers offer support for clients in need of systems navigation. Clients can easily become overwhelmed when living day-to-day in crisis mode. We seek to onboard staff and volunteers "lived experience". In other words, they have experienced homelessness, substance use disorder, mental illness, and or poverty. Lived experiences allow for greater empathy and compassion for clients who require support accessing resources, completing applications, attending meetings, staying on schedule with therapy and or primary care appointments.
Our Mission: "In respecting the innate dignity of all; the Curry Homeless Coalition provides education, advocacy, and coordinates supportive services for people with housing needs."
