Clackamas County Continuum of Care

The Continuum of Care (CoC) is a consortium of individuals and organizations with the common purpose of planning a housing and services continuum for people who are homeless. The CoC is not a formal advisory council to Clackamas County although it does operate with County staff support. The CoC was originated to meet the Federal HUD requirement for Continuum of Care McKinney-Vento funds to flow into Clackamas County for people who are homeless.

The fourth Wednesday of every month, the Continuum of Care meets in the Clackamas County Public Services Building, Room 255. This meeting is open to the public. For more information, contact Abby Ahern at or 503-650-5663.
