BEACH Continuum of Care (CoC) Committee
Who We Are
The BEACH Continuum of Care (CoC) Committee is made up of non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, faith-based organizations, city and state agencies, public schools, businesses, and citizens with an interest in providing services and housing for the homeless and at risk of being homeless citizens of Virginia Beach. The committee welcomes membership from a wide range of individuals, public and private organizations, and the faith community who are dedicated to assisting the homeless.
The committee's mission is to develop, promote, and support a continuum of housing and human services that reduce and prevent homelessness. This mission is carried out in alignment and coordination with the Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation.
What We Do
An important task of the BEACH CoC Committee is to maintain existing resources, seek new resources, and submit the annual Continuum of Care funding proposal to HUD for non-profit and faith-based organizations primarily in Virginia Beach that provide emergency shelter and transitional housing for those in need, and opportunities for affordable permanent housing in the future. Members are active partners in the implementation of the Virginia Beach Strategic Plan to End Homelessness.
