North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

Critical Success Factors in High-Performing Rural CoCs

Homeless assistance systems are as varied as the communities they serve. With nearly 20 percent of the homeless population represented in fully, mostly, or somewhat rural geographic areas, we must learn more about ways to improve our rural homeless assistance systems.
The National Alliance to End Homelessness completed in-depth interviews with administrators and service providers in four rural Continuums of Care:
  • Maine Balance of State Continuum of Care
  • Utah Balance of State Continuum of Care
  • Wood, Seneca, Ottawa, Sandusky (WSOS) Continuum of Care
  • Lancaster County Pennsylvania Continuum of Care
The attached brief examines these five critical success factors. It also includes additional information on each of the four case study Continuums.
