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.
