A New Path Forward
The Raleigh/Wake Partnership to End Homelessness was created to provide a home for the Wake County Continuum of Care.
In this role, the Partnership has been the Lead Agency (HMIS< CE< Planning) and Collaborative Applicant for funding through the CoC Program.
As many of you are aware, separating the governance of the CoC from the Partnership, has been identified as a mandated requirement (HUD, State of NC, etc.) – this can reduce conflicts of interest and clarify roles of all stakeholders including the Partnership, BOD & staff, City of Raleigh, Wake County, HUD funded CoC partners, and privately funded partners, to name a few. Of course, this separation can increase transparency, collaboration, and the level of public participation in the CoC.
The presentation on May 20th was in collaboration with HUD (technical assistance provided by ABT Associates), The Raleigh Wake Partnership to End Homelessness, and information gleaned from the “Big Atlas” Partnership – CoC Community Report.
