In Chelsea, coalition aims to save lives on verge of unraveling

Historically, the numerous nonprofits, charities, and public agencies seeking to address issues such as homelessness, addiction, and hunger have been stuck operating in their own silos, creating more of a reactive rather than preventative system and preventing such organizations from maximizing efficiency.
