Reading/Berks County Continuum of Care PA-506
Berks Coalition to End Homelessness is the lead agency for PA-506 and is responsible for the oversight of all Continuum of Care (CoC) policies, procedures, and CoC project funding decisions. BCEH is the collaborative applicant for the CoC Program Competition, the HMIS lead, and the Coordinated Entry lead agency for PA-506.
The Continuum of Care works to coordinate community-based processes relating to the experience of homelessness and works to build a system of housing and services to address the needs of those at-risk of/currently experiencing homelessness. The CoC works to establish local priorities for system planning and evaluations of system-wide performance with the goal of making homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring.
