The Coalition on Homelessness publishes Street Sheet, a quality newspaper sold on the street by people in need. The Coalition also advocates for the civil and human rights of the homeless, for services and shelter reform, and for permanent afordable housing. The benefit featured the Cuban-oriented band Ritmo y Armonía, led by Felix Reynoso, and the Latin Jazz All-Stars, brought together for the occasion by multi-instrumentalist Roger Glenn. This was the first of what the Coalition, created in 1987, sees as a series of fund-raisers. The Coalition can be reached at (415) 346-3740, or e-mailed at coh [at] sf-homeless-coalition.org.
