The El Paso Coalition for the Homeless exists for the purpose of meeting the diverse needs of all homeless persons.
Collaborative efforts with homeless programs.
Utilization of social services to provide the less fortunate in the community with optimum programs to enable self-growth.
Mission: The El Paso Coalition for the Homeless is a membership-driven alliance dedicated to securing appropriate housing and services for persons who are homeless through advocacy, resources and innovation.
Long-stay hotels are often the last resort for struggling families, even more so during the coronavirus pandemic. Many children are receiving little education with schools closed, and school districts have simply lost track of thousands of students.
A new proposal to solve chronic homelessness in King County estimates it could be done within five years if public and private sectors work together to create enough permanent supportive housing to meet the need.

MYC is partnering with Familias Triunfadoras, Inc. of San Elizario to produce cotton face masks. This is creating income for the women of the community, skilled seamstresses, who in the best of times must battle economic hardship to care for their families. The pandemic compounds their struggle for a dignified life. To date, 100 face masks are protecting home health and hospice nurses--and their patients. This next 100 will protect the farmworkers who continue to harvest the food we eat. Two additional orders will protect the employees of a plumbing business, a medical office, nurse practitioners, physical therapists and employees in a food manufacturing plant. To place an order, please DM Corinne Chacon or Elizabeth Robles. Delivery time for large orders (2 dozen+) is five working days. MYC is helping pro bono. Please help spread the word! Thank you.

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans is urging Congress to approve $200 million in emergency funding to temporarily house homeless veterans in hotel rooms and secure coronavirus tests for those who get sick.
While some people experiencing homelessness have found refuge in local shelters, more are spread across the state, sleeping on sidewalks and under tunnels. Many have also erected makeshift homes under the state’s highways despite attempts from the governor to shuffle them elsewhere.
Experts say the chronically ill homeless have a unique vulnerability to the new coronavirus. (There are already more than 60 known cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, in the state — a number that’s expected to exponentially rise in the coming days.) If exposed, people experiencing homelessness might be more susceptible to illness or death due to a prevalence of underlying physical and mental medical conditions and a lack of reliable and affordable health care.
