Let's March this April.

On April 1, 2023, a compassionate community coalition — local businesses, nonprofit organizations and hundreds of citizens — will march and rally in downtown Santa Cruz to end homelessness. 

As a coalition of service provider partners, we take action by supporting public policy that strives to end homelessness, while further informing our community about homelessness — challenging and dispelling the myths surrounding it. The March will be a partnership event with coalition partners across Santa Cruz County, including Santa Cruz Community Health, Housing Santa Cruz County, Abode Services, Homeless Garden Project, Front Street Inc., Families in Transition, WINGS and Pajaro Valley Shelter Services.

This is the first event of its kind in Santa Cruz County, and you don’t want to miss being a part of it. We are looking forward to your partnership in this milestone event, and in your shared commitment to end homelessness.

We recognize that we share the goal of ending homelessness with many individuals and organizations, and we aim to break down these silos countywide, formalizing and publicizing our collaborative efforts to end this crisis.
