2021 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count Update
This year's FL-510 2021 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count looked slightly different than previous counts.

To ensure the safety and well-being of our unhoused neighbors, staff, community partners, and stakeholders during COVID-19, we did NOT recruiting volunteers for the PIT at the end of this month. If you are interested in the state of homelessness in our community, we encourage you to visit our website and take a look at the 2020 PIT Report.
Eviction and Foreclosure Moratorium Extension
The federal eviction moratorium has been extended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through March 2021.

If you are facing eviction or foreclosure amidst COVID-19, you can call Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, or apply online.

The Northeast Florida Continuum of Care began as a grassroots effort with passionate community and religious leaders guiding the way. And we've made substantial progress.

If you care about homelessness and want to be a part of the solution, please join us.

The general membership meets monthly via Zoom. Email us for more information.
