The campaign is calling on national, state and local advocacy groups, service providers, faith-based organizations, policy experts, and labor and civil rights organizations from every state to join in telling Congress that the needs of vulnerable populations must not be ignored and should be high on its agenda.
The Coalition on Human Needs (CHN) is an alliance of national organizations working together to promote public policies which address the needs of low-income and other vulnerable populations. The Coalition’s members include civil rights, religious, labor and professional organizations, service providers and those concerned with the well-being of children, women, the elderly and people with disabilities.
