Increased funding for Homeless Services

The Northeast Florida Continuum of Care (CoC) received a funding increase!

All renewal grants submitted to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) were renewed and Hubbard House received a domestic violence bonus grant in the amount of $496,014, which represents a $177,000 increase from last year's funding. 

We are pleased that the additional funds will help to rapidly rehouse families impacted by domestic violence.

But we are steadfast in our determination and continue to seek support for our youth/young adults that are experiencing homelessness.

Together, we can changing homelessness!

Thoughts From a Board Member

Did you participate in the Point-In-Time Count? If yes, then you'll likely agree with our Board Member, Brad Russell and the recount of his first-time experience.

Like many first-timers, stereotypes were shattered.

If you haven't been out on a count, we have other opportunities to join us. Stay tuned.

If you have a PIT story you'd like to share, let us know .
Do you HMIS?
The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) fulfills the data collection requirements of HUD and other funding partners.

So what's the big deal?

The benefit of a centralized collection process removes the need to consolidate data stored in multiple locations allowing for end-user, real-time access.

This increased accessibility helps individual member agencies make better data-driven program improvements, and the community identify trends and service needs.

If you're not HMISing, YOU should be.
