The Durham Continuum of Care (CoC) is in the process of developing policies and standards for Opening Doors to Prevent and End Homelessness in Durham.

Policies approved by the Homeless Services Advisory Committee (HSAC) are available on the Approved Policies page.

Proposed policies for which the CoC Lead Agency is soliciting public comments before submitting a final version of the policy to the HSAC for its approval are available on the Draft Policies page.

The Interlocal Agreement between Durham County and the City of Durham, adopted by the Board of County Commissioners and the City Council in 2012, currently serves as the governance charter for Durham’s Continuum of Care.

The 2006 Ten Year Plan Results Plan to End Homelessness continues to provide a vision for Durham’s collaborative initiatives to ensure that every resident of Durham has a place to call home.
