We envision a community where every individual and family has a home.

Our Mission is to work together to educate the central Ohio community about the devastating effects of homelessness upon individuals and families; to advocate on behalf of homeless persons and organizations that serve them; and to empower homeless persons to achieve greater self-sufficiency.

Welcome to the Columbus Coalition for the Homeless.

We are a coalition of service providers, currently and formerly homeless people, and concerned citizens.

We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at the Salvation Army at 966 E. Main St. in Columbus, OH. We meet from 9-11 AM. If you are concerned about ending homelessness in our community, please join us. Our monthly meeting is open to all.

If you would like to send us a question or if you are homeless and have a problem with existing services or accessing assistance, please e-mail info@columbushomeless.org or call (614) 228-1342. We will help to answer any questions or resolve your grievance.


Intake Process for Emergency Shelter

For those seeking shelter, note that that there is a “Centralized Point of Access” for single adults and families (adults with children).
