Why do we do what we do? It's more than just our passion and wanting to help people. We do it because we refuse to accept a community where people do not have a roof over their heads and continue to suffer.
COC PLANNING & COMMUNITY SUPPORT
The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, and State and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness; promote access to and effect utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
Our Street Outreach Workers and Housing Navigators also known as our Coordinated Entry Team, work directly with people that are experiencing homelessness the longest, are the most vulnerable and are the least connected to community supports.
Housing and Services Navigation are fundamental in providing housing navigation services to those living in a shelter. Our focus on data-driven actions coordinated by the Homeless Management Information System (HIMS) helps our team and stakeholders better understand homelessness locally and put forth evidence-based solutions.
No team can succeed without the management and operations of it's collective work space. The Adminstration team works to make sure everything is in order and optimal for the departments to do their best work.
