Welcome to the Central Sierra Continuum of Care (also known as CA-526)
Mission Statement: “The Central Sierra Continuum of Care provides leadership, support, and resources for our regional partnership, that result in safe and stabilized housing, addressing needs of the homeless or those at risk of homelessness.”
The Central Sierra Continuum of Care (CSCoC) serves as the Continuum of Care (CoC) for the counties of Amador, Calaveras, Mariposa and Tuolumne in California's Central Sierra foothill region. CSCoC seeks to prevent, reduce, and end homelessness through effective and coordinated community-wide efforts and services.
Purpose: To coordinate and plan services and initiatives surrounding homelessness, ensuring that knowledge is shared, relationships are built, and common goals are reached. The CoC is also responsible for obtaining federal funding for local programs. See current information here for funding distributed via the CSCoC. See current information here for non-CSCoC funded opportunities.
Structure: A board consisting of various leaders of homeless service providers oversees CSCoC. General meetings are held monthly. See meeting schedule here. All are welcome.

For those interested in discovering how programs designed to alleviate homelessness aid the most vulnerable in our communities, dashboard reports enable an organization to display key metrics in relatable, interactive ways.
The Community Analysis Dashboard report is drawn from the Annual Systems Performance Measures (SPM) report submitted yearly to HUD. It is a “report card” that informs the CoC of its effectiveness and enables it to set goals for 2 or more areas of need for the new Fiscal year.
The Community Performance Dashboard displays data that the CoC uses to identify gaps in programs and redirect resources as required.
The Community Snapshot Dashboard is taken from the annual Point in Time (PIT) count and connects all projects across all 4 counties within the Central Sierra Continuum of Care. The interactive features within the report allow a county and program specific view.
