Continuum of Care: Homelessness

Addressing the needs of the homeless is a major concern for the Athens-Clarke County community. Our planning body continues to develop and modify the Continuum of Care (CoC) to provide support for self-sufficiency for the homeless.  

The Athens-Clarke County Homeless Coalition, with assistance from Housing and Community Development, has continued to recruit active community members and organizations into the CoC planning and service prioritization process. Our collaborative planning body has evolved into one comprised of service providers, homeless and formerly homeless persons, the faith-based community, individual advocates, public and private sector representatives, and locally elected government officials. 

Members of this collaborative planning body attend monthly meetings and participate in monthly CoC planning sessions and other public meetings.
