Monroe County Continuum-of-Care

The Monroe County CoC is the lead agency for the coordination and planning of homeless services in the Florida Keys.

In addition, the Monroe County CoC administers the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for our area and conducts the Annual Point-In-Time Survey (PIT) of homeless individuals. (view report)

As the Lead Agency, designated by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the State of Florida Department of Children and Families, the Monroe County CoC organizes the collaboration of local agencies to to address the needs of clients and provide essential supportive services. By assessing and coordinating interagency communication and services, we avoid unnecessary duplication of effort and close gaps in services.

We educate ourselves and the community about the nature and extent of homelessness, including the needs of the people who are living through the experience of homelessness. We advocate for increased community, political and financial support for the homeless population and prevention of homelessness.
