Each region of Vermont has its own Continuum of Care. Ideally, a Continuum is a partnership of:

  • Local service providers (Community Action Agencies, Mental Health Providers, homeless shelters and service providers, private health care providers, etc);
  • Local resource providers (Economic Services, Department of Children and Families, private lenders, etc.)
  • Nonprofit and for-profit housing managers
  • Housing developers;
  • People who are or were homeless; and
  • Any other key local players in the homelessness or low-income service or housing system.

Together, this collection of partners meets regularly to monitor the needs in their region and works to streamline local services and housing. Representatives of all of these regional continuums of care come together monthly to form the Vermont Coalition to End Homelessness. Coalition meetings are held every third Tuesday of the month, from 10AM-12PM at St. John’s Church in Randolph, VT.

All interested parties are welcome and invited to join the Vermont Coalition to End Homelessness in our work through general membership, committees and workgroups.
