Changing Homelessness

The Organization:

In 1974, an informal group of concerned and engaged social service agencies and religious leaders organized to improve coordination of homelessness services and resource sharing. In 2001, the Emergency Services and Homeless Coalition incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization and received lead agency designation by the State of Florida Office on Homelessness to administer services in support of ending homelessness in Duval, Nassau and Clay counties. Today, our agency is now known as Changing Homelessness. Throughout our 44 years in operation, we have convened and collaborated with numerous partners to reduce homelessness in Northeast Florida’s Continuum of Care.
