The National Health Care for the Homeless Council is the membership association representing HCH health centers, medical respite programs, and many other stakeholders in the movement to end homelessness. While Organizational Membership is restricted to nonprofit institutions, the Council recognizes that for-profits play an important role in our field by providing services, resources, products, and trainings that help advance our mission.
As a Corporate Affiliate, you would receive benefits similar to those of Organizational Members but with two primary distinctions: first, Corporate Affiliates receive added benefits more germane to marketing your products or services, and secondly, Affiliates are free from the responsibility of serving on the Governing Membership, the authoritative body that directs the Council’s strategic priorities. Corporate Affiliation is your opportunity to connect with homeless health care leaders from across the country, to glean insights on insiders’ priorities and needs, and to team with a top national advocate on behalf of our neighbors without homes.
