IMPACT ICT – CONTINUUM OF CARE
Home. It’s where we lay our head at night. Where we cook dinner with family. Where we feel the most safe and secure. Everything starts at home. But what if you have no home? Without a home, it’s hard to keep a job. Without a job, it’s hard to keep a home.
A lack of steady income, insufficient affordable housing, mental health, domestic violence, addiction – the reasons for homelessness are endless and far too great for one organization to tackle alone. Through collective impact, United Way is bringing together key players to tackle homelessness at it’s root causes. United Way is the lead agency for Impact ICT – CoC, a coalition of 170+ people representing: nonprofits; faith community; federal, state, and local governments; businesses; and other community advocates.
Impact ICT – CoC works year-round with one common goal: to make homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring.
