Mission and Purpose

The Cumberland County Continuum of Care (CoC) on Homelessness was established in response to a mandate from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to facilitate the coordination of the community’s human services agencies and the community-at-large in order to adequately set strategies for addressing the needs of Cumberland County’s impoverished populations to include homeless persons and those persons at-risk of becoming homeless through the Continuum of Care System.  The CoC is structured in accordance to the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act), enacted into law on May 20, 2009, which codifies in law the Continuum of Care planning process (Section 1504) and the Continuum of Care Interim Rule, 24 CFR Part 578.
