People in the Central Illinois Area,
Welcome to the Central Illinois Continuum of Care (CICoC) official website. There is information for providers of services in our local area as well as anyone who is seeking housing assistance. Feel free to learn more about our continuum, funding opportunities, or contact leadership for any additional inquiries you may have. I also encourage people to leave us some feedback on how our continuum is performing.
We are a diverse group of people across a large swath of geographic space. Our continuum, one which is largely rural, has 11 counties in it:
Above all, our goal is to reduce and end homelessness. To accomplish that we meet regularly as a group to discuss any and all issues in our local area pertaining to the provision of services that help people experiencing homelessness. This means looking at gaps in services as well as common barriers experienced to receive assistance. Look in the About page for more information on meeting times.
As the CICoC Lead, I will publish regular posts as well as updates on specific pages. These will bring attention to specific news and information about homelessness, funding opportunities, and efforts of the continuum. I hope that this new website will assist us all in maintaining a cohesive and strong network of providers.
Let us continue to end homelessness together.
