A group of private non-profit and public organizations working together to address the complex issues of homelessness

The mission of the Coalition of Homeless Services Providers is to eliminate homelessness in Monterey and San Benito Counties by promoting interagency coordination to develop and sustain a comprehensive system of housing and support services designed to maximize the self-sufficiency of individuals and families.

The CHSP and its agency members serve low-income and homeless individuals and families of all races and ethnicities throughout Monterey and San Benito Counties.

Homeless individuals in Monterey and San Benito Counties may suffer from a range of debilitating conditions including mental illness, substance abuse problems, HIV/AIDS. Other subpopulations include the chronically homeless, veterans, victims of domestic violence, and unaccompanied youth. Homelessness issues affecting men, women, families, are addressed through CHSP’s unique collaborative model.
