The Coalition for the Homeless seeks to educate the citizens of Louisville about the issues of poverty and homelessness so that we all understand that many do not have the same opportunities for success in our society and that there are ways that we can change this dynamic to make life better for others.
The Coalition for the Homeless can provide speakers for groups interested in learning how to get involved. We also have materials available at the Resources tab on this site to educate youth about homelessness. To learn more or to request a speaker, contact Natalie Harris at email@example.com.
Each year, the Coalition for the Homeless coordinates our annual point-in-time count of the homeless on the streets of Louisville from 4-6 a.m. on a Thursday morning in January. Additionally, we coordinate a quarterly count of homeless persons served in Louisville shelters once a quarter. Finally, we work with local shelters to collect data on those served throughout the year in a Homeless Management Information System. This data is used to create an annual census of the homeless of Louisville which is released to the public each spring.
To access both historical and up-to-date statistics, please see our Publications page, and find the section titled “Homeless Management Information System Data.”
The Louisville Street Tips booklet is produced and published by The Coalition for the Homeless. It is intended to be a quick reference guide for those in immediate need of shelter or services. In addition, we hope service providers find this guide useful in providing referrals to our homeless population and others in need. If you would like to obtain Street Tips in booklet format, call us at 502-636-9550 x 206.
