    For the past several years, leadership and coordination of Orange County’s Continuum of Care (CoC) planning process has been the shared responsibility of 2-1-1 Orange County (211OC) and the OC Community Services. This nonprofit - public partnership helps ensure comprehensive, regional coordination of efforts and resources to reduce the number of homeless and persons at risk of homelessness throughout Orange County. This group serves as the regional convener of the year-round CoC planning process and as a catalyst for the involvement of the public and private agencies that make-up the regional homeless system of care.

    The Orange County Continuum of Care system consists of six basic components:

    • Advocacy on behalf of those who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless.
    • A system of outreach, assessment, and prevention for determining the needs and conditions of an individual or family who is homeless.
    • Emergency shelters with appropriate supportive services to help ensure that homeless individuals and families receive adequate emergency shelter and referrals.
    • Transitional housing to h & addressing the needs of homeless families & individuals using motels to meet their housing needs.
