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."
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 on 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 is available to assist clients with the navigation of social services and the completion and submission of applications.
The Curry Homeless Coalition contributed both financially and with subject matter expertise, to 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 that inform our local community health improvement plan, working toward systems change, policy revision, and organizational efforts to encourage the 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 Work source 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 purposely look for people with lived experience as they are often better equipped to understand the complexities and nuances of homelessness and therefore can serve our clients with a high degree of empathy.
At The Curry Homeless Coalition, our vision is a community where everyone has access to the resources and support they need to thrive. We work towards this goal every day, by providing vital services and advocating for policies that promote equity and justice.
Our team is made up of dedicated professionals who are passionate about our mission. We come from diverse backgrounds and bring a wide range of skills and expertise to our work. Together, we are committed to making a difference in our community.
Since our founding in 2005, The Curry Homeless Coalition has helped thousands of individuals and families in our community. From providing emergency assistance to helping people find stable housing, we are proud of the impact we have made. There is still much work to be done, and we are committed to continuing our efforts.
