Continuum of Care

What is the Continuum of Care?

 

The Long Island Coalition for the Homeless brings together over 60 nonprofit organizations with the mission to help people on Long Island who are facing homelessness or are homeless.

 

Each month the members come together to listen to current concerns and opportunities within the nonprofit community. The meetings have a presentation from an agency to educate other professional of their services. Information is given out on upcoming events and openings in housing placements. 

 

As the lead of the Continuum of Care on Long Island, the Coalition's successful coordination of the HUD grant application has resulted in over $10 million in funding each year.
