The Homeless Leadership Coalition is a membership coalition comprised of organizations and individuals who work to prevent and end homelessness in Central Oregon. Mandated by the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the HLC serves as the region’s designated Continuum of Care (CoC). The CoC strategizes and plans a coordinated, comprehensive approach to providing housing and services for people at risk of, or experiencing homelessness.

Each member (association or individual) of the Coalition has a voice on important community matters, including the opportunity to provide input on CoC decisions by participating in HLC committees and workgroups.
