TAMPA/HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY CONTINUUM OF CARE (COC) TARGETED EFFORTS
An effective system of care to address the needs of homeless men, women and children requires a coordinated approach that involves all members of the system of care.
As recognized and stated by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, (USICH), the provision of homeless services cannot happen in silos.
