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 Catherine McGeeney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Coalition for the Homeless coordinated their annual point-in-time count of the homeless on the streets of Louisville from 4-6 a.m. on Thursday, January 30. Additionally, the Coalition for the Homeless coordinates a quarterly count of homeless persons served in Louisville shelters once a quarter. Finally, the Coalition for the Homeless works 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.

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 x10.
