Community Based Service Areas (CBSA)
The Alliance to End Homelessness in Suburban Cook County is responsible for planning and coordination of homeless services and housing options for all of Cook County outside of Chicago. The Alliance service area includes 131 municipalities, which cover 573 square miles within 30 townships, and is home to 2.5 million people.
Because of the size of its map and population, the Alliance has divided itself into 3 Community Based Service Areas:
- Association of Homeless Advocates in the North District (AHAND)
- South Suburban Council on Homelessness (SSCH)
- West Suburban Council on Homelessness (WSCH)
The CBSAs meet on a monthly basis. If you want to get involved with the Alliance, attending one of these meetings is a great place to start. Go to our calendar for dates, times, and locations.
