CoalitionNC ends homelessness
Make a Donation
Every homeless person has a story. No one chooses to be homeless; it just kind of…happens. Homelessness might happen due to unexpected circumstances, or job loss, or trauma, abuse, or addiction, mental illness, recent release from incarceration, or a combination of any of these.
The solution to homelessness is the same – there is no one-size-fits-all fix.
That’s why CoalitionNC solves homelessness one person at a time. Yet simultaneously, at once. We tailor our classes to meet the individual needs of each client in our program. Every individual we recruit – every person we serve – has a unique situation. So each solution we create is personalized to that one client.
The People of Homelessness
Come from all walks of life.
Who do we serve? Individuals. Humankind. Of all backgrounds, circumstances, genders, ages, personalities and viewpoints. We serve those who are often underserved, including those who may be:
- veterans who served
- grew up in generational poverty
- lack knowledge of basic life skills
- jobless due to lack of education
- struggling with substance abuse
- dealing with mental illness
- formerly incarcerated
- simply seeking stability
We equip and empower our clients with resources, life skills and training tailored to their unique situation. We help them overcome challenges and barriers as they work to transition back into the community.
About Our Coalition
We recognize that homlessness is not a uniform experience. Whether its drug abuse, alcohol addiction, or issues dealing with mental health, the road to losing one’s footing in society is different for every person. Homlessness is often viewed as a blanket issue. However, we’re here to dispel this myth and highlight the fact that no person’s story is the same. Unfortunately, a majority of the struggles of the homeless go unheard, and the pain persists. At CoalitionNC, we listen to each and every single individual’s unique story and circumstance. We lend a comprehensive helping hand in the form of our fully customized treatment and training program. Our program empowers participants to get back on their feet, contribute to society in a way that is both meaningful and fulfilling, and ultimately, achieve personal healing.
The famous ancient Greek philosopher Plato once said, “The purpose of education is to give to the body and to the soul all the beauty and all the perfection of which they are capable.” At CoalitionNC, we channel this timeless philosophy into action. We provide our program participants with a fully customized educational path in order to create the most meaningful and results-driven experience possible. We teach everything from basic knowledge that one needs to get back on his feet, such as information on financial health, societal norms, and decision-making skills, to individualized employment training for specific entry level jobs. Moreover, after our participants have completed their journey to employment and stable living, we continue our services as mentors and guidance counselors, who promote a path of lifetime learning. At CoalitionNC, our mission is to equip every single individual with a feeling of purpose––and our unique program is what enables dreams of personal fulfillment to transform into reality.
Our end goal is to achieve stable employment for every single person. We make this happen with our dynamic and adaptable 6-8 month educational curriculum. Our program builds, trains, and leverages the skills of each individual, eventually mobilizing this newfound talent in the form of employment––the ultimate step to fulfillment. Our proven track record of success stems from the fact that we train our program participants to attain skills geared towards in-demand entry level positions. Because we understand the nuances of each target industry at an expert level, we are able to deliver our program at an accelerated rate. This enables individuals to not only gain confidence in their rehabilitation process, but above all, to finally restore that powerful feeling of hope.
Our Path to the Solution
Starts with a holistic, yet customized approach.
The CoalitionNC team works to ensure each client receives the appropriate healing, counseling, life skills training, job training, and continuing aftercare that particular person needs. Since each client is unique, every solution is different.
Before participants are accepted into our program, they complete a comprehensive evaluation and intake with credentialed experts. Those who are ready, move forward into a 30-day pre-program. This pre-program further evaluates to ensure readiness levels. Unfortunately, we can’t accept all applicants. Although we never discriminate for any reason, we do accept only those individuals who are determined to overcome the very real barriers that exist, or who want to forge on after a sometimes-tragic past.
For those we cannot immediately help, we work to direct them to one of our nonprofit partners that can.
Depending on needs, each client may receive any or all of the following resources:
- mental health counseling
- substance abuse counseling
- case management
- life skills training
- job skills training
- paid, on-the-job training
- weekly check-ins
- continuing aftercare
No matter how long or short a client’s experience has been with homelessness, at CoalitionNC, we open our doors to all individuals. We are devoted to the healing, education, training and employment journey of every single one of our clients. As a Coalition, the concept of unity and togetherness defines our very name. We are not a coalition for some––we are a coalition for all, and we always live up to this message.
