Respond with the right tools and strategies

Continuum of Care programs are responding to homelessness in their communities by coordinating food, shelter, health services, and other resources. Yet they still face many obstacles in getting people the help they need. By using location tools to collect, organize, and share data, organizations can better understand the needs of homeless communities, increase the reach and impact of services, and deliver resources where and when they are needed.
