Homelessness in the Johnson County Community
The term “homelessness” conjures up a variety of images and experiences. Even for those who work year-round to assist households to regain and sustain stable housing, the term has multiple meanings. The experience of homelessness results in significant barriers and challenges for adults and children, both now and in the future. Johnson County’s Continuum of Care on Homelessness is a collaboration of public and private service providers committed to quickly and effectively responding to housing crises in order to end homelessness among local residents.

KS-505 Johnson County Continuum of Care on Homelessness
Staff contact: Rita Carr, email@example.com
UCS is the lead agency for the KS-505 Johnson County Continuum of Care on Homelessness or CoC, a community collaboration that seeks to improve the community’s response to poverty and homelessness. The CoC is made up of both private and public organizations and agencies who either serve those who are currently homeless or those who are most at risk. Together, the members of the CoC work to create a comprehensive safety net that provides outreach, shelter, and supportive services to assist households in regaining stable housing. On an annual basis, UCS submits a consolidated application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on behalf of the CoC for housing and supportive services programs. The CoC meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 8:30 a.m., except December, and is open to all who wish to work together to prevent and end homelessness in Johnson County.
