Sonoma County Continuum of Care (CoC)

Membership Open Applications

The Sonoma County Continuum of Care (CoC) is accepting applications to become a member of the Continuum of Care.

The Sonoma County CoC addresses the problems of housing and homelessness by having a countywide, community-informed, and person-centered CoC system that is compassionate, inclusive, financially responsible, equitable, coordinated, and outcomes-based. Anyone or any entity committed to the prevention and ending of homeless is welcome in the Continuum of Care. There are no meeting requirements, dues, or fees to become a member. Please see the link below to access the membership application if you or your organization is interested in applying for General Membership or Voting Membership.

Any individual can apply for General CoC Membership, but only organizations can apply for Voting Membership. The only difference between these two options is that Voting Membership permits one vote on behalf of an organization to vote annually during CoC Board elections.

Organizations located in Sonoma County will be granted voting rights upon receipt of an application, at the discretion of the CoC Board, based on material contributions or commitment to supporting the vision of the CoC. Applicants may be required to demonstrate that they have a Sonoma County location. Applications shall state the reasons for their request, including their role and contributions to meeting the CoC’s mission and vision. The board will consider such requests prior to any election so long as received before the agenda where these decisions are made is posted. The County of Sonoma, all cities and school districts, and any other body reporting to an elected governing board in Sonoma County will be limited to one vote per governing board. Once approved as Voting Members, organizations are not required to re-apply annually.
