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 Continuum of Care Notice of Funding was released by Housing and Urban Development on July 3, 2019. The CoC Program (24 CFR part 578) is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness. Any agency interested in applying for funding through this process should contact the Mahoning County Homeless Continuum of Care Director at email@example.com by Friday, July 26, 2019.
