Mission Statement

The mission of the Homeless Alliance is to facilitate dialogue and strategic action between government, public, and private sectors to end homelessness.

Description

The Homeless Alliance of Western New York was created in 1992 by the Erie County Legislature to find ways to reduce homelessness. By 2000, the Alliance had departed from our governmental roots, and now acts as an independent not-for-profit organization. Working with local service providers and community leaders, we seek to maximize assistance available to homeless individuals and the agencies that serve them in the Western New York area through education, original research, advocacy, community planning, and other collaborative efforts. Annually, the Alliance enters the Continuum of Care funding competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on behalf of service providers in Erie County. As the coordinating agency for the Erie County Homeless Continuum of Care, we are proud to have brought over fifty million dollars to area homeless service and housing providers over the past six years.
