About the Continuum of Care
The Washtenaw County Continuum of Care (CoC) coordinates our community’s policies, strategies, and activities toward ending homelessness.

CoC All-Membership meetings occur twice a year, and provide members an opportunity to network with others interested in ending homelessness, to learn about the work being done to combat homelessness, and to discuss issues impacting the CoC. If you have an interest in learning more or being an active part of the work involved in eradicating homelessness, please attend these meetings.
For more information, contact us through the links at the right. If you are interested in homelessness and housing advocacy and education, please contact the Washtenaw Housing Alliance who works closely with our CoC. Meetings details will be listed through the CoC listserv.
CoC Structure & Governance
The Washtenaw County CoC is governed by a Board, the decision-making body of the CoC. The Board provides the CoC with the guidance and influence needed to effectively implement policies, strategies, and activities toward ending homelessness. The board includes a wide array representing a wide array of systems of care, including formerly homeless individuals, organizations that address homelessness, local businesses, government, hospitals, law enforcement, and public housing agencies. The Board additionally oversees the work of several standing committees related to the work of the CoC.

The Board operates according to a Governance Charter (PDF), approved by the membership each year.
