Edmonton Coalition on Housing and Homelessness
Since 1986, the Edmonton Coalition on Housing and Homelessness (ECOHH) has been our city’s voice for action on affordable housing and homelessness.
The Edmonton Coalition Housing and Homelessness (ECOHH) was created in 1986.
Although the majority of the members are local non-governmental associations, both individuals and the private sector are represented in its membership. While not members, representatives from the municipal government participate at the ECOHH table.
ECOHH has a vision to create a broad based, unified voice to promote change to public policy, increase community knowledge and share information on homelessness and affordable housing.
ECOHH provided leadership in the formation of the Edmonton Housing Trust Fund in 1999. This fund now operates as Homeward Trust and is part of a long-term initiative to provide quality affordable housing in Edmonton by actual investment in projects. To raise awareness of housing issues, ECOHH is the sponsor of the Homeless Memorial. In the past it also sponsored HomeFest an annual folk music festival concert to draw attention to the need for more affordable housing. When election time rolls around ECOHH sponsors an all candidate forum.
ECOHH holds general meetings at 10:00 am on the second Tuesday of each month for members and those interested in learning more about our organization. Additionally, the Policy and Communications subcommittee meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 3:00 pm.
