Youth Work at the Coalition
The Coalition is currently working towards making youth homelessness a rare and temporary occurrence. We are dedicated to centering and empowering the voices of youth and young adults with lived experience of housing instability and homelessness. The Youth Action Board's expertise informs our work towards a more equitable, safe, and human centered housing system.

Haus of Codec - Haus of Codec is providing a safe shelter space for youth ages 18 - 24 to call home and help them find their own, more permanent housing solutions and workforce development opportunities. The shelter space is complete with a food and clothing pantry, self-service kitchen, access to essential services through partner providers, and a sense of community where there wasn't one before.
