Continuum of Care (CoC) Policies and Procedures

The Homeless Trust, in partnership with its network of partners and providers, has developed standards of care, policies and procedures that guide the operations of the CoC’s housing and service delivery for persons at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Below are links to our standards, policies and forms, which can help prospective providers familiarize themselves with our CoC.

The CoC is a Housing First oriented continuum and aims to offer individuals and families experiencing homelessness access to housing regarding the complexity or severity of their needs and without preconditions or service participation requirements. Determine if your proposed project is Housing First oriented by reviewing both this checklist and this locally adopted Housing First Framework.
