The vision for Home for All Continuum of Care ("C.O.C") is to end homelessness in Peoria, Tazewell, Woodford, and Fulton Counties by ensuring access to permanent, safe, and affordable housing. With comprehensive, coordinated services, individuals and families can maintain self efficiency and improve their quality of life.-
More than at any other time, there is a lack of housing that low income people can afford. Without housing options, people face eviction, instability and homelessness.
Low income households often do not earn enough to pay for food, clothing, transportation and a place they can call home.
Health and homelessness are inextricably linked. Health problems can cause a person’s homelessness as well as be exacerbated by the experience. Housing is key to addressing the health needs of people experiencing homelessness.
Many survivors of domestic violence become homeless when leaving an abusive relationship.
Most minority groups in the United States experience homelessness at higher rates than Whites, and therefore make up a disproportionate share of the homeless population.
The Continuum’s providers work with individuals and families from the moment they seek assistance. This collaboration starts with the assessment process to understand the needs of the individual or family and what actions and resources are necessary to achieve housing. This image shows the steps of the process from outreach and coordinated entry through permanent supportive housing. We work to produce the highest outcomes while using minimal resources, all while remaining focused on the longterm success of the individual or family.
Outreach and assessment services to align needs with available resources.
Emergency shelter to provide an immediate and safe alternative to homelessness.
Permanent, affordable, supportive housing to individuals and families with services.
Supportive services to help people develop skills to maintain permanent housing.
