Racine Continuum of Care
The Racine Continuum of Care (WI-502) mission is to coordinate organizations in Racine County to prevent and end homelessness. The types of services offered by the CoC and Alliance member organizations include street outreach, emergency shelter, transitional housing, rapid re-housing, mental health counseling, health care, civil legal services, and more.
Currently, the CoC is recognized by federal, state, and local governments as the entity responsible for carrying out the regulatory requirements found in the HUD CoC regulation. These responsibilities include planning, implementing, coordinating, and evaluating a continuum of services to prevent and end homelessness!
The Continuum of Care does not provide direct services to individuals and families. We work with service providers who do provide those services, such as HALO shelter, HOPES Center, SAFE Haven of Racine Youth Shelter, and Women's Resource Center of Racine.
If you or someone you know needs services, please click on our link below for Homelessness Resources or connect with 211 Impact for resources available.
