Continuum of Care Program and Homeless Solutions

Washoe County will be taking over the regions Continuum of Care (CoC) this summer from the City of Reno.

The CoC is designed to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; provide funding for efforts by local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families and optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Commissioner Hill will discuss the Countys current successful management of the Women and Family Shelter (Our Place) and the Countys plans to leverage this track record at the Mens/Couples Shelter and at the Countys new Safe Camp at the CARES Campus this summer with a combination of caseworkers, social workers, housing specialists and training/education programs.
