Emergency Shelters

The VA-513 Continuum of Care works with shelter providers to coordinate services and referrals across the region. Shelters in the region contribute information about the people they serve with the Continuum of Care, so that the CoC can help plan for programs to move people from homelessness into housing.

The Continuum works with shelter providers, housing service providers and other support programs to work on housing plans for those who are chronically homeless, and/or veterans. This collaboration is known as “Built for Zero” and the goal is to reach a functional zero homelessness.
