A group of private non-profit and public organizations working together to address the complex issues of homelessness

Thank you!

The Coalition of Homeless Services Providers’ Staff and Member Organizations would like to recognize and express their sincere gratitude to Elliott C. Robinson for his continued dedication to the issue of homelessness. Plucked from retirement, Robinson served as the Interim Executive Officer of the Coalition from June 2019 to February 2020. Under his exceptional guidance, the Coalition was able to expand the organization, administer the $12 million Homeless Emergency Aid Program (HEAP) and issue important recommendations for the future of homeless services in our region. Those who have worked with Robinson know that he is not only a brilliant director, but an even more extraordinary human being. Embedded in every decision is a life mantra that inspires his teams to rise above controversy while remaining grounded enough to never forget the people we serve. His guidance has been and continues to be an exemplary model for both work and life. Thank you Elliott, from your Coalition family.

The mission of the Coalition of Homeless Services Providers is to eliminate homelessness in Monterey and San Benito Counties by promoting interagency coordination to develop and sustain a comprehensive system of housing and support services designed to maximize the self-sufficiency of individuals and families.

The CHSP and its agency members serve low-income and homeless individuals and families of all races and ethnicities throughout Monterey and San Benito Counties.

Homeless individuals in Monterey and San Benito Counties may suffer from a range of debilitating conditions including mental illness, substance abuse problems, HIV/AIDS.
