Who We Are

The Monroe County Continuum of Care (CoC) is the lead agency for the coordination and planning of homeless services in the Florida Keys. We are a coalition working with homeless assistance agencies to coordinate the delivery of housing and services to homeless families, individuals, youth, and persons with disabilities.  


Promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness,
as well as access to and effective use of mainstream programs that work to optimize self-sufficiency
among the individuals and families.


Develop and implement
community-based strategies to prevent and end homelessness.


Protect rights of the homeless and advocate for access to healthcare and affordable permanent housing.


Support emergency, transitional,
and permanent housing programs and services for individuals and
families who are homeless.


Seek funding for member organizations and local governments to re-house homeless individuals and families rapidly while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals and the community.


Subscribe to the United Nations Universal Declaration of
Human Rights that adequate
housing is a basic human right
