  Community Initiatives > Balance of State Continuum of Care


The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed to promote communitywide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, and state and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness. In addition, the CoC promotes access to end and effect utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and optimizes self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.


The Missouri Balance of State (Bos) Continuum of Care (CoC) includes 101 counties which are not included in the seven more metro CoC regions of Missouri. MHDC serves as the lead agency for the BoS CoC. The BoS CoC is governed by the Governorís Committee to End Homelessness (GCEH). A separate BoS sub-committee was formed by the GCEH in 2011 in order to allow the full committee to focus on statewide advocacy and collaboration. The BoS Committee makes recommendations to the full GCEH.


The BoS Committee is charged with the following tasks:


∑S  Serve in an advisory capacity to the committee chair


Assist in development of committee guidebook


Provide input on Regional Housing Team Meeting agendas and structure


Contribute to revisions of the BoS CoC 10 Year Plan
