Wake County Continuum of Care
It is our goal to have a transparent, open, and inclusive Continuum of Care (CoC) that is in alignment with HUD requirements and national best practices. We encourage you to read our Wake County Continuum of Care Charter, for a full detail of our governing process.
A New Path Forward
The Raleigh Wake Partnership to End Homelessness was created to provide a home for the Wake County Continuum of Care.
In this role, the Partnership has been the Lead Agency (HMIS, CAS, Planning) and Collaborative Applicant for funding through the CoC Program.
The Wake County Continuum of Care (CoC) is accepting applications for membership from organizations and unaffiliated individuals who wish to work collaboratively to end homelessness and alleviate its hardships.
As many of you are aware, separating the governance of the CoC from the Partnership, has been identified as a mandated requirement. This can reduce conflicts of interest and clarify roles of all stakeholders including the Partnership, BOD & staff, City of Raleigh, Wake County, HUD-funded CoC partners, and privately funded partners, to name a few. Of course, this separation can increase transparency, collaboration, and the level of public participation in the CoC.
This chalktalk by Kim Crawford, Executive Director of the Partnership outlines direction and action steps.
