In the early 1990s, organizations seeking to end homelessness decided to work together to share knowledge and attain greater funding for their efforts. The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness was created to give a unified voice. In a similar vein, in 2008, the Arizona Housing Alliance was started, born from frustration that affordable housing is unachievable for many Arizonans, and knowledge that if we came together we could reverse this trend.
In 2017, the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness and the Arizona Housing Alliance are experienced even greater growth when the boards of the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness and the Arizona Housing Alliance voted to merge, to create the Arizona Housing Coalition.
Because every Arizonan should have a safe, affordable place to call home.
