About Us

The mission of the Out Wayne County Homeless Services Coalition is to eliminate homelessness in the Out Wayne County area.

To accomplish this goal, the Coalition illuminates and identifies the social and economic issues that contribute to homelessness and substandard housing.

Further, the Coalition works to improve the capacity of all community partners to help homeless, imminently homeless, and marginally housed persons locate, secure, and sustain permanent housing.

History

The Coalition was formalized in  April 1996 through a strategy development process that included representatives from more than 60 agencies.  The Out Wayne County Homeless Services Coalition serves as a Continuum of Care body.  The Continuum of Care is recommended by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a comprehensive and strategic approach to addressing homelessness.

The Coalition meets monthly and welcomes your attendance.  Meetings are typically the first Tuesday of each month and begin at 9:30am.  All meetings are held at 2121 Biddle, Suite 102, Wyandotte, MI 48192.
