The Columbus Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) was founded in 1986 by a group of Columbus service providers who recognized that homelessness could best be resolved with a collaborative effort.

Since its inception, the Coalition has held monthly membership meetings with service providers, community members and homeless individuals to identify service gaps and needs and develop advocacy strategies and actions.
