Continua of Care play a critical role in coordinating services for those who are experiencing homelessness—and can serve as key partners to counties and tribal communities standing up CDSS-funded housing programs. But the potential of these powerful partnerships can only be realized if we speak the same language, understand each other’s roles and work toward a similar aim.
To that end, Change Well Project is thrilled to partner with Technical Assistance Collaborative, Inc to present an in-depth webinar designed to help counties and tribal communities deepen their understanding of the role and mandate of the local CoC's. This webinar will provide a brief overview of the Continuum of Care Program and HUD’s requirements for designing and operating a Continuum of Care that acts as the organizing body homeless services locally.
The presentation will cover the distinctions between CoC funding and the CoC planning process, and the key duties and responsibilities of the local CoC. Counties and tribal communities have a vested interest in actively participating in their local Continuum of Care and encouraged to attend this introductory overview to understand these key elements, and how you can contribute toward your community’s efforts to end homelessness.
Leaders will be able to identify complex local systems that intersect with people experiencing homelessness. Leaders will be able to map out a plan to build partnerships across systems to build a robust and responsive homeless response system that meets the immediate and long-term needs of people experiencing homelessness.
