Together We Can End Homelessness
Continuum of Care Documents
Participation in the CoC is open to any individual or agency choosing to be regularly involved in the NoCO CoC’s work. CoC Partners are expected to be those entities or individuals who have an interest in or affiliation with Northern Colorado communities and/or organizations, and whose work is a part of the overall response to homelessness in the region. Individuals and Agencies become formal CoC Partners by signing a CoC Membership Agreement. CoC Partners may join the NoCO CoC at any time, and will be required to renew their membership every two years. CoC Partners must designate one person to serve as the CoC Voting Member, but are encouraged to identify multiple individuals to participate as Non-Voting Members in the work of the CoC. There is no minimum or maximum number of Members for the NoCO CoC. There are no term limits for Voting Members.
At a minimum, Voting Members commit to regularly participating in general membership meetings, as scheduled, and/or committee meetings. To ensure diversity and broad representation, Non-Voting Members are also encouraged to attend general membership meetings and participate in committee work.
