Through its Continuum of Care (CoC) program, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides funding for efforts by nonprofit organizations, states and tribes, and local governments to quickly re-house people experiencing homelessness.
CoCs bring together community partners that offer a variety of services to individuals and families experiencing (or at risk of) homelessness. The partners vary from community to community, but often include public housing and housing services agencies, health care organizations, providers of mental health services, and community-based organizations that provide supportive services (such as the aging and disability networks).
This webinar will orient participants to CoC structures and cross-sector partnerships that address the needs of people experiencing homelessness. Participants also will hear first-hand the benefits of these partnerships from two community-based organizations that are members of their local CoCs.
