About OPHC

The Oak Park Homelessness Coalition (OPHC) is a multi-stakeholder group working to end homelessness in Oak Park. From local government to school districts to social service agencies to businesses, the OPHC meets quarterly, working together to develop:
    •    A baseline understanding of the homelessness issue in Oak Park
    •    Goals and strategies to combat homelessness
    •    Tactics to create a public-facing campaign that educates people about the issue and how people can
    •    A broad coalition to help those who are homeless or in danger of being homeless
