Since our formation in 1989, we have been committed to serving our communities across the state, bringing advocacy, education, data collection, and resource development, to our membership of over 70 different agencies. 

Our Mission

The mission of the North Dakota Coalition for Homeless People is to lead the effort to end homelessness through coordination, education and advocacy.

Our Vision

North Dakota will have safe, decent, and affordable housing that is available to all.


Our core values represent who we are. They describe our intended state of being. They are so integral to our being that we would not abandon them. The Coalition seeks to attract members who share these values:

  • RESPECT  We will treat and consider all people as we want to be treated and considered.

  • COMPASSION  We will treat all people with empathy.

  • INTEGRITY  We will do what is ethical and right. Our actions will match our words.

  • EMPOWERMENT  We will trust people to make decisions and carry them out.

  • DEDICATION  We are committed to our mission and we will relentlessly pursue it.

  • EQUALITY  We are committed to consistently value the equal rights and freedoms for everyone we serve.

  • DIGNITY  We will work to protect and enhance the dignity and self-respect of every
    person we serve.

“Housing is a human right. There can be no fairness or justice in a society in which some live in homelessness, or in the shadow of that risk,
while others cannot even imagine it.”
— Jordan Flaherty, Floodlines: Community and Resistance from Katrina to the Jena Six
