The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness. The program quickly re-houses homeless individuals and families while minimizing the trauma and dislocation they have experienced, promotes access to mainstream resources and programs, and works towards self-sufficiency opportunities. If you would like additional information about the CoC program, you may email IHFA’s Homelessness Programs Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
