Established as a membership organization, over the last three decades CCEH has grown to now include more than 75 organizational and individual members that value and support strategies to prevent and end homelessness. CCEH works through its members and colleague organizations to mobilize a strong grassroots base to achieve policy gains. CCEH is the only statewide organization that both collects and analyzes data on local, statewide and national trends relating to homelessness. CCEH uses this information to provide regional and locally focused technical support, information and training to practitioners, planners, and community leaders who seek to eradicate homelessness.
Today, CCEH builds on its history to make continuous strides in the movement to prevent and end homelessness through partnership, community organizing, advocacy, and education. CCEH works to ensure that families and individuals have more than just a bed for the night, but a stable home forever; not a single meal on a cold night, but a paying job that can support healthy groceries throughout the year.
Beyond our membership, CCEH serves a critical role in filling the information gap between and among countless local, state, and federal government and nonprofit systems working on homelessness and housing issues. Our Annual Training Institute provides crucial training to over 350 professionals, amplified by our recent addition of quarterly offerings through our Change Institute.
CCEH also builds the individual and collective voice to prevent and end homelessness through our innovative Leadership, Empowerment, and Advocacy Development training (LEAD) which has trained over 100 for persons experiencing homelessness since 2008.
CCEH’s website is a valuable resource for providers, advocates, the legislature and the public receiving an average of 28,000-30,000 visitors annually, with 1,154 unique visitors in one month alone. CCEH staff responds to hundreds of calls, e-mails, and letters from the wider community seeking to learn about homelessness, identify opportunities for advocacy and education resulting in positive local action as well as technical assistance. We connect providers, advocates and members of communities with the information that they need to better understand the populations that we serve in order to inform social policy, program design and evaluation.
