The Lee County Homeless Coalition is proud to announce awards to member agencies in the amount of $50,000.

This grant opportunity was made available only to members of the Lee County Homeless Coalition. The Coalition works with individuals and agencies to identify potential gaps within our local Continuum of Care. Members of the Lee County Homeless Coalition are individuals or organizations that are committed to advocating, educating, and promoting awareness of issues and obstacles facing the homeless in Lee County through community collaboration, planning, and implementing solutions.

We recognize that our provider agencies are being stretched to capacity and working harder than ever to deliver effective services often with diminishing funding. The grant funding went to support member Homelessness is a complex issue that can overwhelm independent agencies that address specific issues. The Lee County Homeless Coalition supports all homeless service provider agencies in their efforts to make homelessness a rare, brief, and one-time experience.
