Our Mission

The Mission of the Brown County Homeless and Housing Coalition is to provide leadership in the development, advocacy and coordination of community strategies to prevent and end homelessness.

The Brown County Homeless and Housing Coalition serves the Brown County community. Various steps are involved in breaking the cycle of poverty. The first in this sequence is a safe and stable housing. The BCHHC devotes its time and expertise to act as a networking organization among other community help groups to make a difference.

Our membership is made up of a team of community organizations who directly or indirectly serve those who are facing the many challenges of securing housing. We provide access to these agencies through monthly coalition meetings.
