Coalition of Homeless Services Providers

Mission

To eliminate homelessness in Monterey and San Benito Counties by promoting inter-agency coordination to develop and sustain a comprehensive system of housing and support services designed to maximize the self-sufficiency of individuals and families.

The Big Idea

The goal of the Coalition of Homeless Services Providers (CHSP) is to eliminate homelessness in Monterey and San Benito counties by promoting inter-agency coordination to develop and sustain a comprehensive system of housing and support services designed to maximize the self-sufficiency of individuals and families. We hope to achieve this by hiring youth with lived experience in homelessness as youth navigators. These youth will help guide the community as we create a youth-specific homeless response system. This program not only offers support for homeless youth, but also allows navigators to earn money as a way to establish their own stability.

Most of us got here because we had a single life changing event that destroyed everything. Thank you for giving me a hand-up instead of a hand-out.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 12.
