Our National Partner

Since 1986, the National Health Care for the Homeless Council has led a national call for comprehensive health care and secure housing for all.

The council collaborates with government agencies and private institutions to solve complex problems associated with homelessness, and it provides member support and advocacy to more than 200 Health Care for the Homeless programs across the country—including yours truly.

We are a proud member of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council. We employ three staff members of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council at our Baltimore City headquarters office; they provide important national and policy perspectives on our local work and inform national policy with on-the ground perspective. Meanwhile, Health Care for the Homeless staff members provide critical leadership on a national level, by serving on a range of Council committees and constituent groups, including the National Consumer Advisory Board, the National Respite Care Providers Network and the National Clinicians Network.
