Arlington County has a core network of interconnected programs and services (called a Continuum of Care or CoC) to assist people who are experiencing homeless or at risk of experiencing homeless.
- The CoC includes County government programs/services, on-profit organizations, people with lived experience, and other stakeholders working to address homelessness in Arlington, Virginia.
- The CoC provides a foundation for broader community partnerships and an aligned strategic framework focused on preventing homelessness before it occurs and assisting individuals and families experiencing homelessness in accessing safe and stable permanent housing as quickly as possible.
- If you're interested in applying to become a member of the CoC, please find additional details and a member application here.
To learn more about our CoC’s progress, please read our latest annual report.
