The Coalition of Homeless Providers, located in Seaside, California provides services for over 2,400 homeless people in Monterey County. This organization collaborates with other agencies to provide support for those who are in need of emergency, transitional, or permanent housing. Because of lack of affordable housing in the area, and the lack of available resources, many men and women, as well as families find themselves without a place to stay. Homelessness Prevention Contacts Datasheet establishes a list of rental property management companies and landlords who may be interested in some of the programs provided by the Coalition. These programs provide vouchers and other financial support for people in need of housing. One of the expected outcomes of this project is a partnership between property owners and The Coalition of the Homeless Providers. This project is expected to eventually lead to a decrease in the number of people experiencing homeless in Monterey County, however this won’t be known for at least another year.
