About Us

The National Health Care for the Homeless Council, Inc., recognizes and believes that homelessness is unacceptable; that every person has the right to adequate food, housing, clothing and health care; that all people have the right to participate in the decisions affecting their lives; that contemporary homelessness is the product of conscious social and economic policy decisions that have retreated from a commitment to insuring basic life necessities for all people; and that the struggle to end homelessness and alleviate its consequences takes many forms, including efforts to insure adequate housing, health care, and access to meaningful work. The mission of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council is to help bring about reform of the health care system to best serve the needs of people who are homeless, to work in alliance with others whose broader purpose is to eliminate homelessness, and to provide support to Council members.
