Who We Are
Get Started with KSHC
Founded in 2003, the Kansas Statewide Homeless Coalition, Inc. (KSHC) is a not-for-profit organization based in Lawrence, KS. Our work is to coordinate with communities throughout the state to provide advocacy, education, and collaboration to end homelessness in Kansas. We also provide remote access to services for those experiencing homeless in areas with limited resources.
KHSC is the current Collaborative Applicant for the Kansas Balance of State Continuum of Care (CoC). The Collaborative Applicant is the eligible applicant designated by the CoC to collect and submit the CoC Registration, CoC Consolidated Application (which includes the CoC Application and CoC Priority Listing) and apply for CoC planning funds on behalf of the CoC during the CoC Program Competition. The Kansas Balance of State includes all counties in Kansas excluding Johnson, Sedgwick, Shawnee, and Wyandotte Counties, who operate as individual county CoCs.
