Homelessness Coalition

About the Homelessness Coalition

The Lancaster County Homelessness Coalition is the lead agency for PA-510 and is responsible for the oversight of all Continuum of Care (CoC) policies, procedures, and CoC project funding decisions. LCHC is the collaborative applicant for the CoC Program Competition, the Homelessness Management Information System (HMIS) lead, and the Coordinated Entry lead agency for PA-510.

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.

The office for the Coalition has the primary focus of bringing together the network of partners to deliver a consistent level of quality services to clients in Lancaster County.
