CoC Engagement

What Does the CoC Do?

The Continuum of Care (CoC) is the greater Indianapolis community’s approach to addressing homelessness, made up of local individuals and organizations committed to the prevention and intervention including CHIP Indy, our lead support agency. To achieve our goal of ending homelessness in Indianapolis, we identify critical needs in the community and address them by building lasting systems of housing and service.

Who Should Join?

We welcome both individual and organizational members to join the CoC. To sign up, you may download and sign the appropriate membership statements below by clicking the button below based on the type of membership.

​​Individuals who have experienced homelessness are vital members of the Indy CoC. Anyone with lived experience is considered a member without having to complete a membership statement and is encouraged to engage in the work of the CoC.  Individuals with lived experience who engage in the CoC through advisory groups, workgroups, leadership groups, and/or as consultants will be compensated for their time and expertise according to the CoC Compensation Matrix.

Current CoC Workgroups

To advance our shared goals and key strategies, CHIP works with CoC partners to organize workgroups focused on planning, implementing, and assessing our progress. Each workgroup is tied to a specific strategy or priority of the CoC and should be inclusive of a diverse group of stakeholders and practitioners responsible for translating strategy into action. Every workgroup has a facilitator, a clear focus, and an annual action plan.
