What is the Lead Agency? (From: DCF Office on Homelessness http://www.myflfamilies.com/service-programs/homelessness/lead-agencies) :


"Lead Agencies - 
Local Community Providers of Service
The Office on Homelessness has recognized and designated local entities to serve as lead agencies for local planning efforts to create homeless assistance continuum of care systems. The Office has made these designations in consultation with the local homeless coalitions and the Florida offices of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The continuum of care model creates a framework for a comprehensive array of emergency, transitional and permanent housing, and supportive services to address the varying needs of the persons who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. These are community-based plans and are reflective of unique conditions in each local area. The purpose of the local continuum of care is to help communities envision, plan, and implement coordinated, long-term solutions to address homelessness."
