Local Continua of Care

Each region of Vermont has its own Continuum of Care. Ideally, a Continuum is a partnership of the local service providers (Community Action Agencies, Mental Health Agencies, homeless shelter and service providers, private health care providers, etc); local resource providers (Economic Services, private lenders, etc.); nonprofit and for-profit housing managers; housing developers; consumers; 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. Each local Continua of Care sends a representative to sit on the Vermont Coalition to End Homelessness.
