Building Relationships.
Making Villages.
Repairing Community.

The Village Coalition works to support existing and new villages that provide relationship-based housing to people experiencing houseless displacement.  Our work is informed directly by the voices and needs of our unhoused neighbors.  Our work involves every aspect of partnership with a wide continuum of community stakeholders to identify and develop innovative applications of the village model.  Across every scale of community, whether it's internally among villagers, more widely among housed and unhoused members of a neighborhood, or even across municipalities, we center our collaborations in consensus-based, direct participation for all.

Volunteering with the Village Coalition means bringing your best talent into the service of our most vulnerable and burdened community members.  We need a wide variety of skills to bring forward innovative, community-based initiatives that will transform the way we invite our houseless neighbors back into relationship, and back into community.  Solving houselessness means making restoration - of people, of neighborhoods, and of community partnerships.

Please use this form to share your interests and abilities with the Village Coalition, and come into our fold.  We'll do our best to match you with work in one of our many initiatives.  We look forward to meeting and working alongside you.
