About The Way Home

The Houston/Harris County Continuum of Care (CoC) was created in 2012 and has adopted an action plan with specific goals, strategies and timeframes to prevent and end homelessness in Houston, Harris County, and Fort Bend County. In the past three years, we have seen tremendous results through the increased collaboration among providers and partners. These outstanding results are a credit to our CoC Steering Committee and partners who began to work together to create integrated, community-wide strategies to prevent and end homelessness. This unprecedented collaboration is the key to our success.
