Continuum of Care

Continuum of Care

The Continuum of Care (COC) is the term used for the process of coordinating services and planning among all the homeless service providers in the area. United Housing Connections is the umbrella organization. It leads the following activities:

  • Initiates the process for a homeless count each year
  • Recommends and strives for service providers to get together to share resources, network, and plan
  • Provides support for service providers desiring a HUD Supportive Housing Grant
  • Technical assistance to other agencies, especially shelter providers

United Housing Connections does this work at no charge. It costs the organization about $30,000 each year. There are over 100 homeless service providers in the 13 counties of the upstate. They form 4 chapters that meet regularly. Any interested person is invited to participate at the chapter level.
