What is Continuum of Care (CoC)?
Unless you work with homeless individuals directly or are in a related social services field, the term “continuum of care” may be unfamiliar. The continuum of care, sometimes abbreviated as CoC, concept was designed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) nearly thirty years ago. They represent a community-wide commitment of striving to end homelessness.
As former nonprofit case managers, our team understands continuums of care and how they support individuals and families experiencing homelessness across the country.
