Who we are

We started as a group of service providers who saw a need to help those who were slipping through the cracks and not able to escape being homeless.

Bridging Gaps. Breaking Barriers. Bringing Solutions.

We understand and recognize the barriers keeping individuals and families from having a home. Today, we are focusing our vision on the gaps in services provided to the homeless and those facing homelessness in Allegan County.

100% driven by volunteers and service providers.

Our founding board is comprised of volunteers and professionals working within the sector. Combining their experience and passion for the Allegan Community, they drive the mission of Allegan Homeless Solutions.
