Continuum of Care (CoC):
A Continuum of Care is defined by MSHDA as being, "a coalition of area agencies working together with homeless residents of the county to help them access needed services." It is a proven way of agencies working together to prevent clients from slipping through the cracks of the system. Most CoC groups operate within counties.
Those communities that wish to seek and apply for grant monies for state sponsored housing programs, such as Shelter Plus Care, Supportive Housing, or Section 811 are required to have an active CoC committee consisting of member agencies who are interested in sponsoring housing programs for the homeless, the disabled, and the very low income.
