The only statewide advocacy organization for issues of homelessness and affordable housing, HHCK is a coalition of individuals and organizations working together to eliminate the threat of homelessness and fulfill the promise of safe, decent, and affordable housing for all Kentuckians.

As the only statewide advocacy organization for issues of homelessness and affordable housing in Kentucky, the Homeless & Housing Coalition of KY (HHCK) takes the responsibility of educating state legislators and advocating for more affordable housing in Kentucky very seriously. We were established in 1987 to serve as the unified voice for low income housing issues. To that end, we build capacity among local communities by operating two national service programs: the Homes for All AmeriCorps and VISTA programs. We also directly provide permanent supportive housing across the state and provide leadership to the Balance-of-State Continuum of Care. Lastly, we staff the Kentucky Interagency Council on Homelessness, the state-designated planning body for homeless policy.

Established in 1987, HHCK is a statewide coalition of nonprofit social service organizations, advocates, housing professionals, AmeriCorps members and alumni, and engaged citizens working together to end homelessness and promote safe, healthy and affordable housing for all. HHCK staff and member organizations frequently participate in advisory boards and planning commissions relating to affordable housing in Kentucky and on the national level, including the Kentucky Interagency Council on Homelessness (KICH) and the Balance of State Continuum of Care. HHCK is governed by a 20 member volunteer Board of Directors that represents housing and human services agencies, private sector developers, financial institutions, veteran services, and advocacy groups.

Aside from whether or not homelessness and housing insecurity exists, HHCK is developing an organizational dashboard to capture internal progress markers.

We have developed the statewide Strategic Plan to End Homelessness. We have housed 41 chronically homeless individuals in the last year. We have provided advocacy training in six locations to 150 providers. We will be working on the 2020 Housing Vision campaign over the next several years to grow the state resources devoted to affordable homes.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
