Who We Are

Founded on January 6, 2003, Heartland Coalition for The Homeless is the lead Continuum of Care agency for the planning and coordination of homeless services throughout six counties in Central Florida, namely Hardee, Desoto, Highlands, Okeechobee, Glades, and Hendry. We offer our support to different service providers and organizations through hands-on help, coordination, and education as we serve homeless, disadvantaged, and at-risk individuals, families, and communities.

Our Goals

It is our aim to improve the quality of life of homeless individuals and families throughout the communities that we serve. Heartland Coalition for The Homeless coordinates with community agencies and other organizations to provide quality services and programs, including facilities (i.e. transitional housing, homeless shelters, etc.) and re-housing initiatives.

We are comprised of different organizations, including public housing agencies, local governments, homeless service providers, school districts, hospitals, behavioral health providers, affordable housing developers, and law enforcement agencies. We host quarterly coalition meetings that are open to the public.
