The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed to promote communitywide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, and State and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness; promote access to and effect utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
The St. Johns County Continuum of Care (CoC) is a collaborative of homeless stakeholders from across St. Johns County who are committed to ending homelessness through sharing expertise, using data to inform practice, monitoring system performance, and using our collective voice to advocate for our homeless neighbors. We collaborate with our member agencies and committees to develop performance standards in order to guide each agency and determine the most effective and efficient use of funding in the community.
