The Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition was formed at the initiation of Bishop Michael D. Pfeifer, OMI and consists of twenty agencies in San Angelo, each of which deals directly in providing services to families, the elderly, persons with mental health needs, persons with mental retardation and single men and women experiencing homelessness.
Our coalition seeks to collaborate in determining how we may all fulfill its mission: “Working together to more effectively help people experiencing homelessness become self-sufficient in San Angelo.”
Our Coalition Collaborates
Our aim is to pool our efforts to do the following to:
The Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition determines the extent and nature of homelessness in San Angelo through information which we gather from our member agencies and others in San Angelo. This includes determining which of the various classes of people experiencing homelessness are most in need of services and which might be overlooked by reason of not fitting the precise description our member agencies might decide as the bounds of their ability to meet needs.
The Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition determines whether to create new services for persons that are homeless in San Angelo, such as low-income housing, education, mentoring or financial counseling and to offer an instrument through which funds can be made available to start these new services.
The Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition collaborates with members organizations to develop and support a common system for comprehensively diagnosing the need of a person or family and seeing that they receive the right services.
The Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition serves as a central and diversified coalition into which new information or ideas are introduced and solutions disseminated across the community.
The Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition provides a channel for direct help to homeless persons facing emergency hardship and financial or material needs.
