WHAT IS THE CONTINUUM OF CARE?

The Continuum of Care for the City and County of Racine, U.A. (CoC) is an                        unincorporated association of nonprofit agencies, government, and other                        stakeholders working to prevent and end homelessness in Racine County,                          Wisconsin.  The goal of the CoC is to prevent and end homelessness in Racine County.

HISTORY

In 1996 a group of organizations formed the Homeless Assistance Coalition (HAC).  HAC was a county-wide collaborative effort to identify the needs of those experiencing homelessness, identify solutions and implement those solutions.  Over the years, homeless prevention and housing stability needs were added to the groups goals and objectives.  In 2013 the group changed its name to the Continuum of Care for the City and County of Racine, U.A. and is legally recognized in Wisconsin as an unincorporated association.  Known as the CoC, it is in the process of requesting recognition as a 501(c)(3) non-profit by the IRS.
