The Collin County Homeless Coalition (CCHC) is made up of leaders from the diverse community of Collin County.
While the Coalition is not a direct service provider, we support those organizations who are, as well as help disseminate information and resources.
Non-profit service providers, ISDs and Collin College, city government and elected leaders, health care agencies, businesses and corporations, faith groups and churches, community organizations, and individuals make up the membership of those "working together to provide solutions to homelessness in Collin County".
Collin County is part of the TX-600 Continuum of Care.
