Continuum of Care

Introduction

The Will County area has long supported its homeless and at-risk population through a strong and committed service provider network. Our community continues to witness an increase in demand for services and with the implementation of new welfare reform legislation, the needs among local individuals and families will further increase. In 2014, Kendall and Grundy Counties joined our Continuum of Care and our now part of our geographic service area.

The Will County Continuum of Care (CoC) is dedicated to streamlining and strengthening the current service delivery system through even greater collaborative planning, partnership and program execution. The CoC membership is made up of Government entities, elected officials, non-profit organizations, financial institutions, businesses, housing developers, churches, health care providers, neighborhood associations, educators, the media, homeless as well as formerly homeless persons and others. It is the vision of the Continuum of Care to create a seamless, comprehensive system of services that:

  • Prevents and ends homelessness
  • Supports the emergency as well as ongoing supportive needs of the homeless and at-risk population
  • Provides the tools necessary to sustain needs of the homeless and at-risk population
  • Leads to permanent self-sufficiency

The Will County Center for Community Concerns is the lead agency for the Will County Continuum of Care and provides administrative support for its committees and functions. Please see the Brochure and Calendar below and feel free to contact us if you would like more information or if you are interested in participating.
