February 3: Marion Polk Continuum of Care HUD Designation
HUD provides financial resources to Continuum’s of Care (CoC) throughout the US. Each CoC brings local partners together to work collectively to address homelessness in their area. Carla Munns is a consultant for the Mid-Willamette Valley Homeless Alliance (MWVHA), the region’s Continuum of Care. Its overarching mission is to establish communitywide commitment to coordinate, leverage, and align efforts and resources to prevent and end homelessness through execution of 3 main goals:
  1. Quickly rehouse homeless individuals, including unaccompanied youth and families, while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness;
  2. Promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream housing and homeless services programs by homeless individuals; and
  3. Optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
Come learn more about our regions CoC and how our area is working together to help the unhoused population and Marion and Polk Counties.
