About Us

The mission of the Wisconsin Coalition Against Homelessness (WCAH) is to generate policies, community support, and State/Local resources for housing and services to end homelessness in Wisconsin.

We believe that everyone deserves a safe, decent and affordable place to call home and that homelessness is preventable. We understand that many factors may cause homelessness including a physical or mental health crisis, a lost job, a mismatch between income and housing costs, family violence, or a transition from an institutional setting back into the community.

WCAH will achieve its mission through advocacy, coordination, and building public awareness. The coalition endeavors to be the hub of a statewide network of homeless service providers and other concerned individuals and organizations across Wisconsin.
