Homeless Alliance of WNY is a Continuum of Care (CoC) Lead agency for Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming Counties. Our region receives about $12 million Continuum of Care funding from HUD for housing individual and family who experience homelessness. In 2017, our community’s homeless system implemented the Coordinated Entry system, which means people who experience homelessness will be prioritized housing based on their vulnerability and homeless history in order to reduce the homeless time and prevent hard to serve people falling through the crack. This is a revolutionary process compared traditionally to the first come first serve model.
