The Kansas Statewide Homeless Coalition, Inc. (KSHC) is a not for profit organization with two full time staff. KSHC is governed by a Board of Directors. It has a diverse membership comprised of homeless individuals, service providers, faith-based groups and government agencies. Our work is to coordinate with communities throughout Kansas to provide education and support in an effort to end homelessness in Kansas. Activities include providing educational conference / workshops designed to educate communities on the issues regarding homelessness in Kansas. The KSHC also coordinates an annual point-in-time homeless count for 101 counties (excluding Shawnee county, Wyandotte county, Sedgwick county, Johnson county.) The KSHC Executive Director and the Balance of State (BoS) Continuum of Care (CoC) Coordinator provide support to the 8 regions in the 101 counties to help organize and coordinate regional meetings aimed at developing plans to address homelessness in each of the regions of the 101 counties.
