Continuum of Care

HUD requires that ESG funds support the Continuum of Care model that is based on alleviating homelessness through a community-based process, which enables the homeless population to steadily move toward independence. In Wyandotte County, as in other communities, gaps in services are identified annually, and ESG funds are provided to agencies to meet a variety of needs. Components of a continuum include:

The lead entity in Wyandotte County that provides opportunities for agencies to participate in the Continuum of Care is the Wyandotte Homeless Services Coalition. The WHSC meets the third Tuesday of each month and conducts the following activities:

  • Implementing the process of gaps analysis
  • Workshops
  • Informational sessions
  • Collaboration to build a strong network of homeless services
