Yakima County Homeless Coalition

The primary purpose of the Yakima County Homeless Coalition is to develop and review the Yakima County 5-Year Plan, which will be reviewed annually by the Board of County Commissioners, who is the local legislative authority and holds the ultimate responsibility for the homeless housing programs within Yakima County, as outlined in RCW 43.185C.

The Yakima Homeless Coalition operates under the guidance of the Yakima County Homeless Housing and Assistance Program Charter.
