The Mission of the Mahoning County Homeless Continuum of Care is to assist all persons and families who are homeless and/or near homeless in obtaining housing, economic stability and an enhanced quality of life through planning, education, advocacy and other comprehensive services.
The Continuum’s vision is that all persons and families experiencing homelessness or the possibility of homelessness in Mahoning County will have a permanent, safe, decent and affordable place to call home.
The purpose of the Continuum is to assist service providers in the coordination and development of services for all persons and families who are homeless and/or near homeless and low-income persons with housing needs through planning, education and advocacy.
The Mahoning/Youngstown Homeless Continuum of Care evaluation committee and Executive Board have approved $1,683,905 of recommended renewal funding for the FY 2017 (July 2018-June 2019) Continuum of Care Program Competition (see 2017 NOFA project Evaluation and Ranking chart below). Funding is allocated to those agencies that have responded to the Notice of Funding Availability and meet the needs of providing shelter and assistance to homeless or near homeless individuals and families. Any comments in regard to the final funding recommendations should be directed to Colleen Kosta, Program Manager, Mahoning County Homeless Continuum of Care, P.O.
