Housing advocacy in Arizona now TWICE as strong

Effective July 1, 2017, the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness (AZCEH) and the Arizona Housing Alliance have become the ARIZONA HOUSING COALITION

In April, after nearly two years of exploratory work and preparation, the board of directors of both organizations voted to create the Arizona Housing Coalition in order to have a greater impact on policy decisions and resources for housing and homelessness, and better position ourselves to serve our over 200 organizational members. The ARIZONA HOUSING COALITION will be a collaborative association that leads in the efforts to end homelessness and provide safe, affordable homes for all Arizonans. 

With this merger will come increased collective impact as the ARIZONA HOUSING COALITION is now better positioned to meet affordable housing expansion goals and to end homelessness through a stronger advocacy voice. A majority of the programming of each agency will remain in place and be improved upon. As will major existing programming ranging from the annual homeless conference and healthy communities conference, to the Maricopa County StandDown and other statewide StandDowns and veteran resource fairs.

Your membership and support is incredibly valued -- we simply could not do this work without you! As we move forward with the work of merging these two strong advocacy organizations, we look forward to your continued support in this work to end homelessness and provide safe, affordable housing for all Arizonans. 

Please continue to stay in touch and we hope to see you at a meeting, golf outing, or conference in the near future!
