The Long Beach Homeless Coalition was founded in the early 1990s by a group of concerned community members who recognized the growing homelessness crisis in their city. Over the years, the organization has worked tirelessly to provide a wide range of services and resources to individuals and families experiencing homelessness, including emergency shelter, food assistance, healthcare, job training, and more. Through partnerships with local businesses, government agencies, and community organizations, the Long Beach Homeless Coalition has been able to make a significant impact in the lives of those who are most in need, and they continue to work towards their goal of ending homelessness in Long Beach for good.
