About Us
The Berks Coalition to End Homelessness, Inc. started as a small volunteer group in 1995 to address the problems of homelessness in our area. Since then it has grown to over 60 agencies, businesses, and individuals all working toward preventing, reducing, and ending homelessness in Berks County. In 2008, BCEH applied for nonprofit corporation status and its 501(c)(3).
