The Homelessness Continuum of Care (CoC) has been working to design coordinated entry for people in our community who are facing homelessness. The newly designed system will provide a more streamlined way for people to access housing and services so that people get the right resource at the right time. As the housing market continues to get tighter, efforts to coordinate access to resources and identify new resources become even more critical.
Engaging and retaining landlords who will rent to special needs populations is essential for ending homelessness. One national best practice in landlord engagement is development of a Housing Security Fund (aka Landlord Risk Mitigation Fund). We are pleased to announce that the Homeless Continuum of Care (CoC) partnered with the Richmond Community Foundation to host a Housing Security Fund in Contra Costa!
We now need your input to help prioritize possible uses for the future funds. Please click here to give us your thoughts.
