2016 Community Conversations: CSH Reccommendations

The Ozarks Alliance to End Homelessness (OAEH) serves as our community’s Continuum of Care – the HUD designated regional planning body for homeless services. Our aim is to create systems that make homelessness rare, brief and non- recurring in Christian, Greene, and Webster Counties.

Our primary goals are to:

  1. Work to promote community-wide planning and strategic use of resources to address homelessness;
  2. Improve coordination and integration with mainstream resources and other programs targeted to people experiencing homelessness;
  3. Improve data collection and performance measurement; and
  4. Tailor programs to the particular strengths and challenges within each community in our region.

Community Partnership of the Ozarks has facilitated the local Continuum of Care program since 1995 when the US Department of Housing and Urban Development established the program nationally in an effort to coordinate housing and services funding for homeless families and individuals.   Annual funding which totals over $800,000 from HUD is awarded to our member agencies to  provide direct shelter and support services to our homeless population.


Preventing & Ending Homelessness

Everyone plays a role. And every role is important.

Please take a moment to review the letter recently sent to Mayor Bob Stephens regarding the Continuum of Care’s efforts to prevent and end homelessness in our communities.
