Who We Are

The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless (MCH) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public policy and advocacy organization that works to ensure statewide housing stability and economic security. MCH is able to work with those experiencing housing instability in partnership with over 120 members across the state. These members range from those who work across the housing continuum in direct service, to state agencies in public policy.

The mission of the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless is to generate policies, community support and local resources for housing and services to end homelessness in Minnesota.

We achieve our mission and vision through advocacy inside the Capitol, outside the Capitol and in the media. With our partners, MCH has advocated for state funds to build or preserve over 13,000 units of affordable housing, and cultivated over $390M in legislative wins for housing stability across the state. We’ve moved upstream to improve economic policy for families in Minnesota living in deep poverty.

Homelessness is declining, but we still have work to do.
