Coalitions are local-area manufactured-home owners’ groups. The range of a coalition might be a city, a county, or anything in between. Some coalitions promote GSMOL’s goals and may share some of the same leaders. Some coalitions sign up individual homeowners and others consider its “members” to be parks. Coalitions can fill in the “middle layer” between the statewide GSMOL and the GSMOL chapters in parks. They often work on community projects that bring together homeowners from all the parks they represent. To find out more about a coalition use the link to visit its website.
