Who We Are
Board and staff members of the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention & Prevention (CHIPindy) believe that successful efforts towards ending homelessness require collective talents, resources and commitment of the entire Indianapolis community. No one group or individual has the ability to address these issues along. As an intermediary, we work with others to create a systemic and effective approach towards ending homelessness.
- We match the right people with the right questions and data to mobilize community concerns and planning activities.
- Not only do we engage the community-at-large in the big picture conversation of homelessness, we work with various partners to advocate, ensuring that many voices are heard at the local, state and national level on issues of funding and regulations, e.g., tax credits, health care, mass transportation and education.
- We empower service providers to fulfill their potential by providing needed continuous education and training through capacity building grants and funding.
