The Savannah-Chatham County Continuum of Care (referred to as "Continuum" or "CoC") is the county-wide plan to address homelessness in Chatham County Georgia. The plan represents key stakeholder organizations and individuals utilizing a systems approach. This system organizes, funds and provides outreach, engagement, and assessment; emergency shelter; rapid re-housing; transitional housing; and permanent housing. It also includes community awareness and education, homeless/at-risk of homeless prevention strategies and efforts to reduce the overall number of homeless individuals.
The Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless (CSAH) is the lead agency for CoC plan implementation. The twenty-one (21) member Continuum of Care Board is responsible for making key strategy decisions for the CoC. CSAH in collaboration with the Continuum of Care Board serves as the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD's) recognized decision making body for the Continuum rule at 24 CFR 578, Subpart B, entitled "Establishing and Operating a Continuum of Care."
