ORGANIZING FOR 

A BETTER TOMORROW 

The Texarkana Homeless Coalition consists of a number of organizations and individuals working together to end homelessness in Texarkana and Bowie County.

 

In Texarkana, as in the rest of the United States, the homeless and near-homeless population includes people from all walks of life.

 

The purpose and objectives of this Coalition are: 

 

(1) to gather information in order to identify and fill the gaps in services and community needs; 

 

(2) to protect and improve the lives and safety of the homeless and near homeless;

 

(3) to actively engage homeless and other stakeholders in developing solutions to achieving self-sufficiency;

 

(4) to communicate with funding entities, other organizations and the public at large to promote the general welfare of the homeless and to increase self-sufficiency; and

 

(5) to ensure full development of  a continuum of care with the shelter, housing and programs necessary to meet the needs of all homeless people and efficiently and effectively move them to self-sufficient life.
