Applications due Sunday, April 23, 2023
The Tucson Pima Collaboration to End Homelessness (TPCH) is a coalition of community and faith-based organizations, government entities, businesses, and individuals committed to the mission of ending homelessness and addressing the issues related to homelessness in our community. The Board and committees form the core of our governance model, where community members, people with lived experience, and agency staff come together to lead our strategic efforts to prevent and end homelessness.
The TPCH Governance Charter outlines the purpose, responsibilities, and procedures for each TPCH committee. Committee members oversee and monitor the shared work of TPCH and its members, providing guidance and expertise to the CoC Board. Committee members are elected and appointed annually in May. All of TPCH’s governing documents can be found by clicking TPCH Governing Documents – Tucson Pima Collaboration to End Homelessness, and committee responsibilities can be found by clicking TPCH Committees & Community Coalitions – Tucson Pima Collaboration to End Homelessness.
