IN THIS TOGETHER
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread, we know that it is our responsibility to ensure the safety of you, your family, and our community. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 and will continue to share resources on our lihomeless.org website. Those experiencing homelessness are amongst those most vulnerable.
Please help Long Island Coalition for the Homeless continue to dedicate their services towards those most vulnerable to ensure they are safe, healthy, and housed.

At this time, there will be no in-person meetings. Please refer to our CoC website for more information. Our Boutique is open by appointment only. Please refer to the Boutique page for more information.
Our approach is somewhat simple: we meet people where they are at, and support them until they are permanently housed- whatever that takes, and however long that takes. We do this using techniques and approaches that are grounded in evidence to be most effective, in a person-centered way.
WHAT WE DO
At Long Island Coalition for the Homeless (LICH), we connect those experiencing homelessness with the support that assists in exiting the status quo as fast as possible. Learn how we hope to end homelessness.
Addressing the complexity of homelessness requires strategic and sustainable solutions. At LICH, we believe results prove results. The key to success are research and cross-sector collaboration.
Homelessness is experienced by a community. As a community we can all take a part in ending homelessness by getting involved. Take the steps to helping your neighbors today.
