The Continuum of Care (CoC) is the collective networks, institutions and organizations that provide housing and services to people who are at risk or are experiencing homelessness.

Federally-mandated goals of the CoC include:

  • Promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness;
  • Provide a funding for efforts to quickly re-house individuals and families who are homeless, which minimizes the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness;
  • Promote access to and effective use of mainstream programs;
  • Optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

The local CoC is staffed by Tarrant County Homeless Coalition.
