About the Out-Wayne CoC

The mission of the Out-Wayne County Continuum of Care (CoC) is to eliminate homelessness in the Out-Wayne County area.

To accomplish this goal, the CoC illuminates and identifies the social and economic issues that contribute to homelessness and substandard housing. Further, the Coalition works to improve the capacity of all community partners to help homeless, imminently homeless, and marginally housed persons locate, secure, and sustain permanent housing.

History

The Out-Wayne CoC (formerly the “Out Wayne County Homeless Services Coalition”) was formalized in April 1996 through a strategy development process that included representatives from more than 60 agencies.  The Continuum of Care is recommended by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a comprehensive and strategic approach to addressing homelessness.
