For over 25 years, the Erie County Home Team Homeless and Housing Coalition has been working on eradicating homelessness in Erie County, PA. Our partner agencies and individuals are focused on treating those in need with compassion, kindness and respect. The work of the coalition will not be complete until all of those in need have a safe, warm and secure place to call their own each night.
There are many in the community who depend on our efforts.
Housing leads to security and stability. Our goal is to assure every person and family in need will be placed in permanent housing and be able to stand on their own and support themselves.
Taking care of a vulnerable population is key to those experiencing homelessness finding housing. Physical, behavioral, and mental health must all be addressed.
Food, education, obtaining identification, and childcare are just a few of the obstacles faced by those we serve. Linking each person to the needed services is imperative.
