The Coalition on Homelessness was formed in 1987 to foster the active participation of homeless and low-income San Francisco residents and front-line staff in the struggle for economic and social justice. Through an integrated approach that combines outreach, peer support, leadership development, public education, advocacy, and community organizing, the COH works to defend homeless and low-income people from attacks on their rights and their persons, while advocating for permanent solutions to homelessness that take into account not only poverty's devastating effects, but also its root causes.

The COH dvocates for effective and humane services, employment, and housing for homeless and low-income people. COH work groups meet regularly to develop programs and policies in the areas of civil rights, welfare and economic development. COH projects include the Human Rights Workgroup and the Housing Justice Workgroup. The COH does outreach to homeless people and has a speaker's bureau that makes presentations to groups concerned about homelessness. The COH produces the Street Sheet, a newsletter addressing many issues facing homeless people.
